Plants for Food and Fiber
Humans have always depended on plants as a source of food and fibre, and to meet a variety of other needs. To better meet these needs, technologies have been developed for selecting and breeding productive plant varieties and for maximizing their growth by modifying growing environments. Long-term sustainability requires an awareness of the practices humans use and an examination of the impacts of these practices on the larger environment.
- How do we produce useful plants?
- What techniques do we use, what knowledge are these techniques based on, and how do we apply these techniques in a sustainable way?
