Bitter Seeds explores biotechnology in India in farming and airs Thursday, January 31st at 7 pm.

Biotechnology is changing the way farming is done all over the world. Advocates believe the “New Green Revolution” is the only way to provide sufficient food for the world's growing population while opponents raise environmental concerns and fear that GMOs drive small-scale farmers off the land. Bitter Seeds explores the controversy — from a village in India that uses genetically modified seeds to U.S. government agencies that promote them.

Bitter Seeds can be seen on Thursday, January 31st at 7:00 p.m.
