The rise of genetically modified organisms (GMO’s) over the last two decades has triggered persistent concerns for health and the environment. The GMO debate has been part of an ongoing discussion on Greening of the Great Lakes, heard on WKAR’s MSU Today. Dr. Kirk Heinze hosts the feature, which is also heard occasionally here on Current State.

Heinze speaks with Dr. Rebecca Grummit of the MSU Department of Horticulture and the graduate program in plant breeding, genetics and biotechnology.
