Abstract

  • Genetically modified (GM or GMO) crops have been widely adopted by growers and are a significant source of feed for animal agriculture.

  • Most GMO crops commercialized for animal feed have input traits that do not change their composition or nutritional value for animals.

  • Feeding GMO crops does not result in detection of transgenic DNA or their translated proteins in meat, milk, or eggs.

  • Genetically modified crops help reduce greenhouse gases, decrease agricultural chemical use, and increase farmer incomes.

  • Genetically modified crops provide better pest protection and weed control, which increases yields and preserves more land for wildlife and biodiversity.
