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).
