It?s not usual for city people to be concerned about plants or grass?they see so;little of them. Nevertheless, Martha Goldman has been interested in these things;since her first biology course back in Brooklyn, New York. Martha won all the;awards in the science fairs and eventually was the recipient of a scholarship to;college. She chose to major in botany and became fascinated with the creation of;hybrid plants and grasses. Martha was also concerned about the problem of;hunger around the world. She knew that improved plants and grains increased;the productivity of American agriculture, and hoped that someday, she would find;a way to play a small part in reducing world hunger.;After college, with the help of her dad, she opened a small wholesale greenhouse.;The business was a modest success and allowed Martha to experiment with new;growing methods. Two years ago, Martha?s research paid off. She had been;working on developing a fast-growing grass that needed less water. One of the;experiments produced a grass that seemed to have real potential. She tested it;with a local cattle rancher. All tests so far have shown that the new hybrid grass;is better for feeding cattle. Martha may have realized her dream?a grass that will;grow better in parts of the world that could not previously support cattle. High;protein beef cattle may now be able to thrive in parts of the world where;previously it was not possible.;Question;How should Martha proceed to determine the best way to export her new grass;seed?
