The fear surrounding these crops is largely unfounded by the scientific research available thus far. GMOs have been shown to have many benefits, such as decreasing the use of agrochemicals in farming and helping decrease food insecurity in impoverished areas by increasing the productivity of their yields. They are at the forefront of cr [...]

Innovating GMOs through Public-Private Partnerships

Community Manager - Mar 26, 2021

That being said, on average, GMOs take 13 years and $130 million in R&D before coming to market, which makes it difficult for small companies [...]
