Biotech Crop and Traits Annual UpdatesDecember 13, 2017
ISAAA releases the updated series Biotech Crop Annual Updates and Biotech Traits Annual Updates. The Biotech Crop Annual Updates includes five short documents on biotech crops, namely: soybean, maize, cotton, canola, and alfalfa. Information in the series includes data on adoption, adopting countries, and the benefits of each biotech crop, based on ISAAA Brief 52: Global Status of Commercialized Biotech/GM Crops in 2016.
The Biotech Traits Annual Updates is a summary of traits deployed in biotech crops. The publication also includes a short discussion about the benefits of biotech crops with such traits, based from ISAAA Brief 52.
The documents are available for download from the ISAAA website.
The Crop Biotech Update is a weekly newsletter of ISAAA, a non-for-profit organization. The CBU is distributed for free to over 23,000 subscribers worldwide to inform them about the key developments in biosciences, especially in agricultural biotechnology. Your support will help us in our mission to feed the world with knowledge. You can help by donating as little as $10.
