In the first of this series of columns on genetically engineered crops, I shared my personal experience observing the challenges farmers encounter controlling weeds in crops as well as the toll that certain insects have on corn.
As this column goes to press, three Ukrainians are driving 16 hours across their country to reach the international airport in Warsaw, Poland. Trains would be faster but stations are a favorite target of Russian missiles.
