Are Genetically Modified organisms bigger than regular crops?

    GMOs are not necessarily bigger than regular crops. However, they can increase the crop yield and allow crops to grow faster while being more resistant to dangerous chemicals and environmental stressors.

    Some genetically-treated crops grow larger than traditional or organic crops, but not always as a direct result of the gene manipulation. Often, genetically-modified organisms (GMOs) are engineered to be resistant to pesticides. Monsanto’s triple-stack corn is one such product grown in the United States. The corn may grow larger and stronger than its organic counterparts due to aid from pesticides.

    GMOs are also produced for medical purposes – they can even be animals. Earlier this year, an anticoagulant drug was extracted from the milk of a genetically-modified goat.
