So they're genome mapping coffee. They're wondering why some varietals
have good results in many areas. No mention of soil health. Sounds
like the start of a outside inputs based and controlled system. Farmer
must be under contract and are forced to plant certain (gm?) seeds,
use certain fertilizers/supplements/pest controllers etc. Quality and
consistency will improve, sort of. You may be able to grow Kenyan and
Colombian on the same farm in Florida if they take it far enough. Oh
happy day.
So what if there's nothing from a blueberry in a Krispy kreme
blueberry doughnut.
