"Does anyone know if the yield of GM corn and soybeans are different or the
same as conventionally bred corn and soybeans. There must be information
on that somewhere and I thought some one on the list would know where it is."
I was cleaning off my infamous "desk" again, this time the top of the
freezer and I found another article related to your question.
"Ten Reasons why farmers should think twice before growing GE crops."
by E. Ann Clark, Plant Agriculture Department, University of Guelph in
In this article, Ann does an economic analysis of the conditions under
which it is economically justified to use BT corn and herbicide resistant
soybeans. She also discusses the development of insect resistance problem
and the genetic pollution problems like the tranfer of the herbicide
resistance gene to your weeds or your neighbors crops.
I originally found the article linked at this website at
http://metalab.unc.edu/farming-connection/. The direct link is
assuming the Thought Police have not shutdown her website. If worse comes
to worse, get back to me and I will photocopy it for you.
*Yes, the very same Ann Clark who was recently trashed by corporate pastys
for publishing a report which, Oh my God, daring to review the safety
research about genetically modified food that is posted on the Health
Canada Web site.
