Nature and human nature have been in partnership for 18 000 years of agriculture. Now, with the tools of biotechnology used in modern agriculture, plants are stripped of their genetic diversity and defenses. Nature is forced to adapt to chemicals at every step of the food chain. Narrated by David Suzuki, Fragile Harvest makes it abundantly clear that we are all at peril if technology and plant development for profit alone are allowed to replace the complex, evolving community of life that sustains us all.
