Production of Transgenic Plants Increased as Expected, Study ShowsMarch 20, 2019
Experts from Instituto Politécnico Nacional and Universidad Autónoma del Estado de México conducted a study to analyze the transgenic crop production trends from 1996 to 2016 around the world and the relationship between the area allocated to the cultivation of transgenic crops and the profits generated by this activity. They also highlighted the data in Latin American countries. The results are published in Transgenic Research.
Results showed that despite the significant increase in the area planted with transgenic crops, their production presented a deterministic growth behavior. Production in Brazil, Argentina, Paraguay, and Uruguay increased from 2004 to 2016. The study also showed a positive relationship between the global area planted with transgenics and the corresponding area in these chosen countries.
