    take us so far

    Please clarify the following in red.

    A premise basic to almost every agricultural system (conventional, organic, and everything in between) is that seed can only take us so far. The farming practices used to cultivate the seed are equally important. GE crops alone will not provide all the changes needed in agriculture.

    Is this saying "seed has a limit in doing something, or seed can be effective only to a certain degree"?

    Thank you.

    The seed alone cannot produce anything.

    Could you please give the source for this material, the standard of writing is very questionable.

    It's from the book <<Abundance>> by Peter H. Diamandis and Steven Kotler.
