Professor and chairman for the Horticultural Sciences Department at the University of Florida, Kevin Folta, gave a compelling presentation at the recent Florida Fruit and Vegetable Association’s annual conference about how to effectively communicate facts about transgenic crops. Folta armed the audience with the knowledge and ability to effectively communicate the truth about biotech products. He said it is imperative that farmers engage with their communities to tell the true story behind this issue.

Folta also produces podcasts on his website, where he discusses the science behind medical and agricultural biotechnology.
