The Next Generation Agricultural Revolution of Genetically Modified Crops: Pros & Cons

Tanjot Singh

Abstract :

 Genetically Modified crops are plants used in agriculture that have been transformed using biotechnology. This technology has been widely adopted by more than 28 countries from 1996 to 2014 because of 

the increasing potential benefits of high yield, insect resistance, land–saving technology and conservation of bio–diversity. However, despite the various advantages this technology has faced a lot of criticism and controversies. The paper 
discusses the growth of genetically modified food crops globally as well as in India and highlights the various advantages and disadvantages associated with it. An attempt has also been made to provide suitable policy suggestions.
