Spanish seed distributor lists GMO benefits
Spanish seed distributor Eroski Consumer has published information on its website explaining the benefits of employing genetically modified crops. They include a considerably lower use of insecticides, improved yields, reduction in labour, stronger and shorter plants and the use of marginal land. The portal claims that “insecticides bring indiscriminate action”. Further benefits flow from the reduced use of pesticides, such as lower prices for produce. The graphics add data on the benefits of tolerance to stresses such as drought.
