Default ADOPTION OF GENETICALLY ENGINEERED CROPS IN THE U.S.

ADOPTION OF GENETICALLY ENGINEERED CROPS IN THE U.S.
September 17, 2003
ERS - USDA
http://www.ers.usda.gov/data/BiotechCrops/
U.S. farmers have adopted genetically engineered (GE) crops widely since
their introduction in 1996, notwithstanding uncertainty about consumer
acceptance and economic and environmental impacts. Soybeans and cotton
genetically engineered with herbicide-tolerant traits have been the most
widely and rapidly adopted GE crops in the U.S., followed by
insect-resistant cotton and corn. This product summarizes the extent of
adoption of herbicide-tolerant and insect-resistant crops since their
introduction in 1996. Three tables devoted to corn, cotton, and soybeans
cover the 2000-2003 period by State. To view entire report see:
