While giving thanks this holiday season, stop a minute to remember those, such as Dr. Borlaug, that dedicated their life’s work to feeding the world.

cherished moments. Across the world, many people are thankful for a man that, through his wheat-breeding, would be the revolutionary shuttle-breeding process. This innovative process allowed for two generations of wheat to be grown each year, instead of the traditional one generation, cutting breeding time, don’t realize that my grandfather’s breakthrough in shuttle-breeding occurred when he was in his 30’s
