Genetically modified (GM) crops and seeds are a significant leap in modern practices of agricultural production. GM crops and seeds have been modified to display specific characteristics such as resistance to pests and tolerance to herbicides and have the capacity to address weather fluctuations and other challenges in the production of agricultural crops. The development of GM crops and seeds involves modifying the DNA using genetic engineering methods with the objective to introduce a new trait which does not occur naturally in the species.
The reaction of farmers to the new variant of seeds and crops has been mixed. While some farmers have been receptive about genetic crop improvement, others have been mindful of the controversy surrounding GM products related to health and environmental impacts.
