ROME Cheap David Njoku Jersey , Feb. 15 (Xinhua) -- Much more must be done to help family farmers across the world use biotechnologies that can improve productivity and sustainability, experts said here on Monday.
At the opening of an international symposium hosted by the UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), Director-General of the agency Jose Graziano da Silva defined agricultural biotechnologies, the symposium's leading theme, as a ""broad portfolio of tools and approaches to eradicate hunger Cheap Jabrill Peppers Jersey , fight every form of malnutrition and achieve sustainable agriculture.""
In the face of major global challenges, biotechnologies, he said, can result in yield increases, better nutritional qualities Cheap Myles Garrett Jersey , improved productivities of crops, livestock, fish and trees benefiting family farmers and their food systems, nutrition and livelihoods.
""We must find the means to remove the barriers that prevent their availability to family farmers,"" da Silva pointed out in his opening address to the three-day symposium Cheap Isaiah Crowell Jersey , in which some 500 experts including scientists and government representatives met to share knowledge and best practices.
Da Silva also underlined that the Rome-based UN agency's symposium was not about genetically modified organisms (GMOs), because ""agricultural biotechnologies are much broader than GMOs.""
In fact, the term ""biotechnology"" designates a ""toolbox of many diverse molecular and genetic techniques allowing the ever more precise characterization of the genetics of specific traits and the full genome of useful species,"" Louise O. Fresco, president of Wageningen University and Research Cheap Joe Thomas Jersey , in the Netherlands, said in the forum.
""Biotechnology does not equal genetic modification but genetically modified organisms can result from the application of biotechnology. However, public opinion often considers them identical,"" he noted.
""The bottom-line is that biotechnology is both a continuation of traditional and classical breeding as well as a qualitative and quantitative step towards high precision methods,"" Fresco said.
For example Brazil Cheap Jim Brown Jersey , one of the world's largest producers of food, feed, fibers and renewable fuels, is today an acknowledged leader in generation and implementation of modern tropical agricultural technology, said Mauricio Antonio Lopes Cheap DeShone Kizer Jersey , president of the Brazilian Agricultural Research Corporation (Embrapa).
Despite these advances, however, the challenges arising from global warming, the consequent climatic extremes and an increasing world population make sustainable food production a key issue for the next decades, he added.
""The current Wholesale Cleveland Browns Jerseys , general feeling in Brazil is that there is no way back in the use of biotechnology in agriculture if we want to improve food production and food quality and address the challenges of food security and low-carbon sustainable development,"" Lopes stressed.
MADRID， May 15 (Xinhua) -- The 18 year-old Max Verstappen caused one of the biggest upsets in recent Formula 1 history when he won the Spanish Grand Prix in the Circuito de Catalonia circuit outside of Barcelona on Sunday.
The teenager who was making his debut for Red Bull after being promoted from the Toro Rosso squad， took advantage of a race which changed completely within the first 20 seconds to finish ahead of Ferrari pair Kimi Raikkonen and Sebastian Vettel.
It is hard to think of a more dramatic start after the Mercedes duo of Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg both span out on the fourth corner after starting first and second on the grid.
Rosberg had overtaken Hamilton on the first corner and in his attempts to recover Hamilton ran off the track， lost control and as he span took the World Championship leader and winner of the last seven Gran Prixes out of the race.
With the two cars which have dominated this season and last out before the end of the first lap， the Spanish Grand Prix suddenly opened up for the other teams and was eventually decided by tactics and Verstappen's cool head.
Verstappen only took two stops during the race and although he had Raikkonen on his tail for the last 22 laps， he drove perfectly to claim his win. He also benefitted from his team' s decision to give team-mate Daniel Ricciardo three stops， which had been calculated as a slower strategy on a track where overtaking is notoriously complicated.
Despite his failure to finish， Rosberg maintains the leadership of the Drivers' Championship.
