Wonderful, must see for anyone interested in GMOs and plant breeding! What an amazing, intelligent and warm human being Kapuler is… I was so fortunate to spend a day with Kapuler in his gardens and home on my recent visit to Oregon….I was blown away by the guy…such a warm human being too..
Pictures from my talk for Sumarhúsið og garðurinn (Summerhouse and Garden magazine) in Reykjavik on 5th September 2015…..
During the talk it was decided that edimentals should be known as skrúðmeti in Iceland!!
