Is it necessary that genetically-modified crops contain little biodiversity? Why not plant a variety of GMOs to guard against catastrophic crop failure?

    I would suspect that it has to do with trying to simplify agriculture practices. GMOs have been created to ward off disease and to increase yield and there is little biodiversity because they will use an area to grow a crop and will continuously use it and exhaust the land rather than rotate crops. Oftentimes they try and get as high a yield as possible. They don’t always concern themselves with the health of land or the ecology in the area, which may have long term implications for the land and surrounding area.
