I have a new farmer hero

Henri de Laulanié.

Norman Borlaug did some great work, but the result of his tinkering was less-nutritious, high-yield wheat that hasn't stopped causing health problems compounded with a series of unsustainable farming practices for it.  Henri didn't even have to breed the rice for traits, just work with it and experiment.  Norman could have done the same thing.  Anyone could have, really.
