What are genetically modified plants?



  1. 0 Votes

    Genetically-modified plants are, by their name, floral matter for which the biological makeup has been altered to improve, or otherwise change, its existence. Genetic modification is especially common in plants that are also food products, especially fruits and vegetables. 

    What is interesting about these modified plants is that, in August of this year, scientists found populations of them in the wild for the first time. In North Dakota, researchers uncovered a cache of canola plants, which tested positive for either CP4 (an additive that confers tolerance to glyphosphate herbicide), EPSPS (which allows tolerance to glufosinate herbicide) or both. Scientists described these findings as having “important implications for the ecology and management of weedy species, as well as for the management of biotech products in the US.”
