Genetic Chile

An up-close look at the impending introduction of GMOs into yet another crop, this film centers around New Mexico’s green chile and the controversy around genetically engineering this revered pepper that residents feel is part of their heritage. New Mexico State University received a government grant to produce GMO green chiles and is beginning research while the community is fighting back and the local farmers are trying to prevent these organisms from being introduced into the crops. Includes discussion around safety, crop production and health, and impact to local industry. Great info about GMOs that every needs to know!
