Although "grain rich," the so-called breadbasket states of North America and Australia are actually "gene-poor." They are wholly dependent upon regular infusions of the South's (America) crop germplasm in order to stave off the advances of ever-mutating pests and diseases. (Germplasm is the genetically potent part of a seed, essential to renew resistance to (those) ever-mutating pests and diseases as well as to develop new varieties.) Without access to Third World breeding material, the Northern harvest would slowly decline and would ultimately be destroyed.
