Adoption Of Genetically Engineered Crops In the U.S
Overview
U.S. farmers have adopted genetically engineered (GE) crops widely               since their introduction in 1996, notwithstanding uncertainty about               consumer acceptance and economic and environmental impacts. Soybeans               and cotton genetically engineered with herbicide-tolerant traits               have been the most widely and rapidly adopted GE crops in the U.S.,               followed by insect-resistant cotton and corn. This data product               summarizes the extent of adoption of herbicide-tolerant and insect–resistant               crops since their introduction in 1996. Three tables devoted to               corn, cotton,               and soybeans cover the               2000-10 period by State. See more on the extent               of adoption…
