I have tried to get a word to the netcom webmaster about starting a
"transgenic plants" news group. So far I have one other person
interested. If you are, email me. I think it takes several requesters
in order to for a news group. Micro.
As far as transgenic plants go, I think it is a good idea. We all use
too many chemicals to get plants to survive. Hybrids with resistence
are the only solution on the long term.
