Summary

The adoption of genetically modified crops across the world has been variable. European countries, in particular, have resisted their introduction. The use of modified organisms in conjunction with conventional agronomic practices may be necessary to secure an adequate food supply. Public education is critical for the widespread acceptance of GM foods.
