Scientists see a natural place for ‘rewilded’ plants in organic farming

One key element of organic agriculture is that it rejects unpredictable technologies, such as genetic engineering. But what if adding a gene from undomesticated plants to bring back a natural trait isn’t unpredictable? Researchers present a case for using precise genetic engineering technologies to ‘rewild’ crops in a way that would make organic farming more efficient, and thus more profitable.
