dc.description.abstractThe world’s population will increase significantly in the near future and the demand for healthy, affordable food will also grow. Given that the area of available arable land required to produce food will not expand, new and environmentally sound technologies allowing farmers to produce more on the same amount of land must be developed. The development of genetically modified crops through biotechnology is one of several technologies now available to help address the world’s increasing demand for food. Unlike their traditionally bred counterparts, genetically modified crops have been studied in great detail to assure their environmental safety.
