I get a lot of emails from public relations agencies, pitching products and services sold by their clients. A recent email - I won’t identify the agency or client - included this remarkable statement:
“In 2017, agriculture will be fully embraced, moving towards providing food stability across the globe and working out discrepancies regarding GMOs.”
