Accelerated Evolution is a technology on the Diplomacy and Trading technology tree with a research cost of 25000 . It unlocks one Star System Improvement, requires research in High-Consumption Society, and allows further research in Permanent Advantage.
"Based on the ancient technologies of recombinant gene engineering, accelerated evolution is a pool of techniques that overall permit organisms to adapt and thrive at an [sic] very rapid pace. When applied to crops, it produces densely packed fields of disease- and pest-resistant plants that self-fertilize, adapt to intense climate conditions, and even taste good."
"Crops are no longer recognizable as the plants from which they sprung. Nano-enhanced and genetically modified, healthy and immortal plants are food factories that run year-round, regardless of the weather. Continually harvested, self-fertilizing, and auto-regulating, the food supply will simply never run out."
