PW1 2019

Since molecular technologies became available to plant scientists, they are trying to improve plant production by changing the genetic structure of the plant. Last November an article was published in which scientists reported that they improved photosynthesis and production of tobacco plants with more than 25 percent. (South, Cavanagh, Liu, & Ort, 2019) When this 25 percent extra photosynthesis is extrapolated to potato crops yields of 150 to 160 per tons per hectare should be possible. The question now is; are these techniques the best way to higher yields?
