CropLife Reports 20 Years of GM Crop Benefits in AustraliaJune 8, 2016
CropLife Australia releases the report Adoption and Impact of Genetically Modified (GM) Crops in Australia: 20 Years' Experience written by Graham Brookes of PG Economics. The report provides insights into the reasons why many farmers in Australia have adopted crop biotechnology and continue to use it in their production systems since the technology first became commercially available. It draws on the key findings relating to the global impact of biotech crops and focuses on the farm level economic impacts and the environmental effects associated with pesticide use and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.
