GMOs are extensively researched and regulated to ensure that these crops are safe and effective tools for farmers to grow enough while also caring for the environment. In that regard, GMOs are an essential aspect of advancing sustainable agriculture. Explore the science and safety record behind one of humanity’s biggest breakthroughs.
Adhering to GMO Regulations
In addition to meeting our own strict standards, we always work in compliance with strict safety regulations set by the international scientific community, governmental agencies and other oversight organizations.
GMOs Around the Globe
GM Crops are currently grown in 26 nations and are approved for import in 70 countries. Currently, Bayer commercializes genetically modified traits in canola, corn (maize), cotton, soybeans, and squash, but cultivation and import vary by country according to each country or regional regulation. These crops are used mainly for animal feed and in the clothing industry (cotton). For more information, please visit the International Service for the Acquisition of Agri-biotech Applications (ISAAA).
