Plant Scientist Shortage?;

Postby P.C. » Thu Oct 02, 2014 11:05 am

The survey this is based on will be wrong. I stake my retirement savings on this.
The planet may need more ag production, but ever since I have been in the plant sciences, this is the propaganda. In the last 30 years, the demand for scientists has been shrinking. Actual public anc corporate policy and economic forces speak against wishful thinking.
