GMO Crops and Seeds Market Will Rise at 8.3% CAGR by 2022

The mixing of genetic traits of seeds naturally has been a practice that the agricultural industry has been following for decades in the search to develop robust varieties. However, the modification method used with GM seeds varies from traditional method, wherein the genes are not modified over generations of cross-fertilization, but rather directly inserted into the DNA of the seed.

GMO seeds offer premium characteristics to increase agricultural output, enable longer shelf life, and offer greater resistance to insects. Manufacturers of GMO crops and seeds are developing new GM crops that not only offer resistance to pests and diseases, but also offer increased tolerance to herbicides such as vitamin A-fortified rice and wheat, pesticides such as cowpea and beans, and drought tolerant biofortified bananas and maize.

GMO crops and seeds are not proven to be harmful to humans, but research suggests that modified crops may negatively impact food chains and the environment. These factors have led to a mixed response among farmers about the adoption of GMO crops and seeds.

GMO crops may pose health hazards that range from toxicity to increased risk of allergies, however, regulations in place to ensure adequate safety of GM technologies go too far.
