Economic and Environmental Impacts of First Generation Genetically Modified Crops: Lessons from the United States - Full Report

By Charles Benbrook on September 10, 2003

It finds that if the efficiency of GM crops and glyphosate (Roundup) are to be preserved, there must be changes to cropping techniques used in Argentina.
