Pesticide alternative helps plants protect themselves from disease

Thirdly, unlike GMO methods, it is a new technique that doesn’t alter the plant’s genome, which potentially removes it from the bad press and legal regulations that have dogged biotech crops. In addition, from an ecological perspective, unlike conventional pesticides, which don’t differentiate between helpful and harmful insects, with RNA sprays, scientists could theoretically refer to DNA data to avoid genetic matches with friendly bugs, such as honeybees. That said, some scientists have pointed out that this is harder than it sounds, since many insect species often share the same important genes.
