GM crops are farmer size neutral
Published on 17/03/2013
For the first time in the sixteen year history of the commercial production of biotech crops, more acres were planted in developing countries in 2012 than developed ones, 219 million acres versus 202 million acres, according to estimates by the International Service for the Acquisition of Agri-Biotech Application (ISAAA). Of the 219 million acres in developing countries, 171 million acres where in six South American countries with large farms much like developed countries. The remaining acres are in countries with large numbers of limited-resource farmers.
