Cotton leads US expansion for all major GM crops

Plantings of all major genetically modified crops have risen in the US this year, according to the June survey by the USDA. The area planted with GM cotton has expanded by about 25% to nearly 10 million acres (4 million ha), representing 93% of the overall upland cotton area of 10.7 million acres. That compares with 88% of the 9 million acres planted in 2009. This year’s overall upland cotton area has been revised upwards from the USDA’s March estimate of 10.3 million acres ( Agrow No 589, p 17).
