Yes you can. A seed is considered organic if it is grown without the use of chemicals.

its genetically modified

yes. but not true always this again depend upon how is this food modified genetealy

It depends on how it has been modified and what traits were selected for modification. Generally they grow at a similar rate to non-modified crops.

I assume you mean genetically modified, since anything that grows does so based on its genetic material. No, genetically modified crops do not take any longer to grow than their naturally-selected counterparts. When growing corn, for example, the farmer can choose from a fairly wide selection of maturity lengths, both in normal and in genetically modified.

An advantage is often higher crop yield. However they have also genetically modified plants to grow faster instead of more, or to produce better in a certain climate.

§ Genetically engineered organisms such as crops are given traits such as bigger seeds or better resistance to pests. § With animals, they might give it genes to grow fatter or produce more milk. § Plant biologists are working to create plants with genetically-engineered resistance to diseases. § In embryos, defective genes can be removed.

Genetically modified food is so cheap because the processes used in growing it is supposedly "faster, better, and cheaper." Most soybeans, which are in most of the foods we consume, are genetically modified and nobody really knows. Companies just want to grow more for cheap then sell more at a cheap price.

That depends on the variety. Many, if not most, store bought veggies are hybrids, genetically modified or irradiated and will not produce good, grow-able seeds.Experiment is the answer. Gather and plant your seeds. If they sprout at all, you should have a nice plant for your new garden.

Genetically modified fish are fish that have had their DNA changed by taking a gene from an unrelated organism and forcing it into the DNA of a fish. The only known GMO fish is salmon, which has been modified to make grow faster and bigger than their non-GMO counterparts.

If your question is asking what the difference between genetically modified food and organic food is, the two have nothing in common except that they both grow in the ground.Genetically modified food seeds have been genetically altered in a lab and usually include a gene or genes from a different species than the seed itself. For example, corn seeds may be genetically altered with bacteria, virus, animal or human genes, which are forced inside the corn seeds. Often, the purpose of the genetic modification is to make the crop more tolerant to chemical herbicides and/or pesticides. GMO seeds are patented and cannot be saved from year to year. No long-term studies have been done in order to determine the effects of consuming GMO foods.On the other hand, organic food usually begins with seeds of varieties that have been grown and their seeds saved for many years, although hybrid varieties, which are a cross between two varieties of the same species, may also be used. Organically grown foods cannot contain GMOs. They have no modifications and are truly natural. The food grown organically is completely safe and some studies show that organic foods are more nutritious than non-organically grown foods.

Genetically Modified foods, or GM foods, can be genetically modified with many different goals in mind. This can be for a faster maturation time or it could be for insect resistance, drought resistance, higher yeild, etc. Most GMO foods today are genetically manipulated to be resistant to herbicides or to produce an insecticide within the plant itself. Genetic engineering has no affect on their maturation.

In some cases, genetically modified organisms can make it easier to grow food. Some genetically engineered crops are able to grow better in certain areas than others. For instance, a genetically modified corn crop could be made to be better suited to growing in a certain environment than naturally occurring corn crops. These crops could be made so that they are more robust than natural crops, which could make them easier to grow. However, genetically modified crops could also cause problems, because they are not as genetically diverse as natural crops. This could be a problem if a disease breaks out among the crops. In populations of natural crops diversity allows some crops to survive such outbreaks because of genetic traits, but in genetically modified populations that diversity might not be present which could lead to the death of all the crops in a population and erasing the food supply.

Food that are known to have been genetically modified are corn, soy, canola, rice, wheat, apples, papayas, tomatoes, potatoes, crookneck squash, and possibly other foods. More and more foods are being genetically modified, so this list will grow as time goes on.

Genetic engineering has been used for a number of profitable purposes. Monsanto uses it to make genetically modified crops, and farmers who want to grow those crops pay for the genetically modified seeds. Pharmaceutical companies pay for the genetic engineering of bacteria which have been engineered to secrete useful substances such as insulin. Those are the main applications so far. More uses may follow.

it does not have the chemical put into the soil and organic soil will grow faster and your food will taste different. sea sol is very good and it also very good and makes your food grow quicker Additionally, organic gardening must begin with organic seeds. Persons who use regular seeds in their organic garden do not have an organic garden.

Genetically Modified crops are used because it makes crops grow quicker. And also because it increases the vitamin and protein levels.

Genetically engineered organisms such as crops are given traits such as bigger seeds or better resistance to pests. This helps farmers able to produce more crops, which in turn helps feed more people. With animals, they might give it genes to grow fatter or produce more milk.

Its used for any purpose that non-genetically modified food is used for. If you mean why is food genetically modified - the purpose is to make the food taste better, grow faster, be resistant to pests, be resistant to herbicides, last longer, or for a host of other properties meant to make the food better and/or cheaper.

To combat pest and disease and yield a larger harvest. Most bugs are becoming resistant to GM crops. And the GM crops con not reproduce on their own, so these companys that make GM foods have a hold on the organic seed market making it harder for natural farmers to grow their own crops and the pollen gets blown onto organic fields preventing them from producing seeds. Messed up ain't it.

People genetically alter pigs in order to make the pigs grow faster and be more meat than fat. When the pig bodies grow faster it increases the efficiency of the farm or business. Sometimes the pigs grow so heavy so fast that they can not support themselves.

Organic food does not permit the use of synthetic pesticides. It does not allow genetically modified organisms (gmo) sometimes referred to as genetically modified food. Further, organic food is not permitted to use irradiation. All of these techniques have been linked to long time development of cancer and other diseases in human and animals. When you eat organic food, you stay away from all of these chemicals. The methods use to grow and handle organic food ensure minimal environmental effect. These growing methods help to maintain nutrient rich soil for plants, which produce healthy plants. Healthy plants are rich in nutrients. So, one could argue that organic food is better for us. However, both the US and Canadian governments maintain on their websites that organic food is no more nutritious than non-organic.

none why are chickens so small when you buy them at the store and farm chickens are bigger. Well grocery chicken is feed a powder that make them grow fast but they grow small. Farm chickens are organic and so are BROWN eggs. White eggs are not organic eggs. Basically nothing because now a days there is not as much healthy food the fish have mercury.

Well plants with out seeds are actually man made so they dont make seeds because of that but if they are organic for some plants it might grow faster it just depends on the plant really

Pecan trees grow typically in warmer climates so garden shops in those zones would likely sell seeds to grow pecans. However, some pecan trees have been genetically modified to be hardier and withstand harsher climates like Canada. It is not impossible, but one will likely find garden shops in southern parts of North America selling pecan tree seeds.

To an extent it is bad. Then what is to an extent, Inorganic farming or intensive farming can fed to masses, even though it is harmful to nature kills environment and a slow poison to humans. So, in order to control on inorganic farming three things has to be done. 01. Go for population control 02. Give incentive to farmers who do organic farming. 03. Develop seeds which can grow in shorter period, without any genetically modified, so that the farmer can use seeds from their own yield. When there is more supply through organic farming then the rate comes down in equal to inorganic farming.
