Global GMO Crops and Seeds Market: Overview
Genetically modified (GMO) crops and seeds offer a host of advantages of which advantages of increased agricultural productivity and reduced need of environmentally harmful pesticides are prominent ones. The reduced availability of arable land is leading to the use of GMO crops and seeds to speed up crop production.
GMO seeds offer premium characteristics to increase agricultural output, enable longer shelf life, and offer greater resistance to insects. Manufacturers of GMO crops and seeds are developing new GM crops that not only offer resistance to pests and diseases, but also offer increased tolerance to herbicides such as vitamin A-fortified rice and wheat, pesticides such as cowpea and beans, and drought tolerant biofortified bananas and maize.
GMO crops and seeds are not proven to be harmful to humans, but research suggests that modified crops may negatively impact food chains and the environment. These factors have led to a mixed response among farmers about the adoption of GMO crops and seeds.
GMO crops may pose health hazards that range from toxicity to increased risk of allergies, however, regulations in place to ensure adequate safety of GM technologies go too far.
