“By 2020, GE crops will be grown on 10 fold more acreage than they are today, will be widely accepted by consumers and will have clearly benefited the goals of sustainable agriculture”

Pamela C Ronald


Ronald's Argument

GE crops are already grown in 15 countries and have massively reduced the use of insecticides. Still, many consumers, especially those in the Green 1.0 movement, are skeptical that GE crops will help move agriculture to a more sustainable system (as measured by land use efficiency, reduce water use and reduced inputs of harmful pesticides and fertilizers)
