FROM THE FARM
In this "race for research" coffee farmers in the Antigua, Guatemala region are experimenting with hybrid trees. By taking tissue samples from growing trees, the agronomists are able to grow additional tissue and roots in the lab that are genetically identical. These efforts are critical to the fight against warming climates and devastating plant diseases like Rust.
