Essay topics:

Broccoli is a vegetable that is popular throughout the United States, but it can be grown only in temperate climates with mild summers. Because of this limitation, 90 percent of the broccoli consumed in the United States is grown in the cooler regions of California, on the West Coast. It must be shipped 4:000 kilometers across the entire country to reach the populous East Coast
This situation may soon change, however: scientists are attempting to create a new type of broccoli that can be grown on the East Coast despite the hotter summers there. This project has several potential benefits.
First, growing broccoli on the East Coast and distributing it to nearby grocery stores would lower broccoli costs for consumers Transporting the vegetable from California by truck takes several days, which makes transportation costs high. Growing broccoli locally would reduce transportation costs, so stores could sell broccoli for less money.
Second; the new type of broccoli will probably be much more desirable to consumers than some other new crops. The new broccoli is being created using traditional breeding techniques: researchers are crossbreeding broccoli with other similar plants that have desirable characteristics, such as resistance to hot summers Other new crops—varieties of squash or maize, for example—were created using genetic modification technology. Genetically modified crops are very controversial: many consumers believe they are unsafe and so reject them. However, the new broccoli will not be in that category.
Third, vegetables are healthiest to eat right after they are harvested because they retain most of their beneficial nutrients and vitamins. The Ion ger it takes for a vegetable like broccoli to reach consumers, the fewer nutrients and vitamins it contains. Broccoli that is grown locally can be eaten much sooner after it is cut, which will make this new broccoli healthier for East Coast residents than California broccoli.

The reading and lecture are both about the launching of a new project--growing of Broccoli where it is previously not grown. The author of the reading feels that there were several benefits after doing so. The lecturer challenges a claim made by the author. He is of the opinion that this would not be successful, and have pernicious effects.
To begin with, the reading says that growing vegetables in one native place would decrease the price of vegetables, which initially have to bring from a long distance, in the form of transportation. The speaker casts doubt on it. She argues that growth in one place would not necessarily lead to a decrease in the price of products. She further suggests that the growing vegetables might have low productivity, lowering the yield per unit area, increases the price, and as a result, there would cancel in saving of money by the consumer.
Moreover, the article contends that the new products would be suitable for the consumers; obtained after the crossing of broccoli with other compatible parts. It further points that although genetic modified crops were hazardous, this would not be such. The lecturer, on the other hand, asserts that production from traditional breeding technology would be suspicious to the consumers. It further clarifies that as finance has been providing by the same company which produced crops with genetically modified technology, and have distrust with the consumers. Consequently, new products would be rejected.
Finally, the article posits that this new vegetable would be available right after harvest, contains a high amount of nutrients and vitamins. However, the professor refutes it by discussing that there might be many vegetables enriched with the same amount of nutrients that grow not only in winter but also in summer and fall too. For instance. kale and other many leafy vegetables have such properties. According to him," people should be aware about the fruits and vegetables that were available locally".
