Genetically Modified Crops

Author(s): K. Gray,

The effects of Genetically Modified (GM) crops on income, poverty, and nutrition in developing nations are still a source of debate. Supporters believe the method has a lot of potential for increasing agricultural output and reducing seasonal changes in food supply caused by biotic and abiotic pressures. Productivity increases are an essential precondition for attaining long-term food security in the face of rising demand for agricultural products, natural resource scarcities, and extra problems brought by climate change. Second-generation GM crops, such as those with enhanced vitamin content, could also help poor people overcome certain nutritional deficits. Furthermore, GM crops have the potential to increase rural income, which is important for poverty reduction in developing countries
