Rice in the United States is GMO-free and yet there are thousands of varieties and dozens of traits growers and millers want to capitalize on or avoid. How is it done? Science, of course! Join two of the most preeminent rice breeders in the world as they talk shop and give civilians a peek behind the scientific curtain. Our own Dr. Steve Linscombe, who spent three decades as a rice breeder at the LSU AgCenter, welcomes Dr. Adam Famoso, the current LSU rice breeder, to the podcast.
