Genetically Modified Crops: Transgenics and Cisgenics
USDA Economic Research Service (ERS) released its annual update on the adoption of genetically engineered (GE) corn, upland cotton, and soybeans in the United States. ERS reports that more than 90% of U.S. corn, upland cotton, and soybeans are produced using GE varieties that are herbicide-tolerant (HT), insect-resistant (Bt), or stacked varieties that are a combination of both HT and Bt traits. Both the data sets and a summary of recent trends are available online.
