    Hi Julia!

    I have been wondering whether anyone would chime in here.

    I am coming to the conclusion that the role of genetics in delivering nutrient density is not widely enough understood and acknowledged.

    It will be interesting to observe what data is revealed in the coming year with more detailed analytics from BFA.

    In the recent podcast interview with John Fagan we touched on some of the variabilty they are finding with different growing conditions. I do believe there are significant differences, and that genetics are likely to produce at least as big, if not bigger variability.
