They’re not calling it genetic engineering – and I can’t blame them, given the widespread irrational opposition to the term – but that’s what they’re doing: creating better crops smarter than ever and faster than ever.

As I point out in Evolve, all breeding processes seek to achieve (amongst other things) at least viable if not better offspring. Being smarter about it: through selective breeding (article above) or directly engineering the genome or whatever just makes sense.
