December 20, 2017

ISAAA releases an additional set of four countries to the series Biotech Country Facts and Trends. The new set includes the four industrial countries in the 18 biotech mega-countries in 2016 that grew 50,000 hectares, or more, of biotech crops: United States of America, Canada, Australia, and Spain.

Biotech Country Facts and Trends are concise summaries highlighting the commercialization of biotech crops in specific countries. Data on biotech crop commercialization (area and adoption), approvals and planting, benefits and future prospects for each country are presented in a brief and easily understandable manner. The contents are based on ISAAA Brief 52, Global Status of Commercialized Biotech/GM Crops: 2016.
