Are hybrid F1 seeds genetically modified?

No, hybrid seeds are not genetically modified. Hybrid seeds are produced by cross-pollinating two different varieties of the same plant species to create offspring with desirable traits from both parent plants. This process is known as hybridization, and it is a traditional method of plant breeding that has been used for thousands of years. On the other hand, genetically modified (GM) seeds are created by introducing specific genetic material into the DNA of a plant, usually through modern biotechnology methods such as gene editing or transgenesis.
