Two-Thirds of All Biotech Crops in The World Are Grown in The United States

Crop varieties developed by genetic engineering were first introduced for commercial production in 1996. Worldwide, about 670 million acres of land are under cultivation, of which 22 percent consisted of GM crops in 2002. More than 145 million acres worldwide have GM crops, and over 96 million of those acres are in the United States.

GM food crops grown by U.S. farmers include:

  • corn
  • cotton
  • soybeans
  • canola
  • squash
  • papaya

If you aren't up to speed on GM foods, you will want to read my recent article on this topic.
