I have a Bsc in Agriculture as well as years of experience on organic systems. I have even visited banana production systems in Africa. Bananas are not GMO, at least not the cavendish which is the cultivar you are referring to. Organic bananas are very difficult to grow as it's near impossible to grow a monocrop without the aid of sprays to prevent the rapid spread of pests or disease.>So don't eat that shit if you want to live
Actually there is little "evidence" to show that sprays can do serious harm. However we do know pyrethroids affect hormone balance and glyphosate causes tumors a la agent orange.>Don't eat food without seed. It is unnatural.
You sound like Rudolf Steiner, the founder of the biodynamic system. It pre dates organic and all the production on the farm is conducted through ritual because Steiner was a firm believer in esoteric knowledge and saw the workers and their well being as part of the farm as a whole. Interestingly, all biodynamic farms have their own breeding areas to cultivate their own seed to increase biodiversity and reduce pest and disease risk.
As a side note, if you're still reading, is that cultivars that are the result of breeding under conventional production struggle to be grown organically because they lack sufficient root development. This means they can't find nutrients in the soil because they are used to having chemical fertilisers dumped on them.
