FDA 07/04/13 Questions & Answers on Food from Genetically Engineered Plants

What is genetic engineering? Genetic engineering is the name for certain methods that scientists use to introduce new traits or characteristics to an organism. For example, plants may be genetically engineered to produce characteristics to enhance the growth or nutritional profile of food crops. While these technique are sometimes referred to as "genetic modification," FDA considers “genetic engineering” to be the more precise term. ERS USDA 12/06/14 Adoption of insect-resistant GE corn varies by region. ERS USDA 04/03/14 Adoption of Genetically Engineered Crops by U.S. Farmers Has Increased Steadily for Over 15 Years. By Jorge Fernandez-Cornejo, Seth J.

ERS USDA 04/03/14 Adoption of Genetically Engineered Crops by U.S. Farmers Has Increased Steadily for Over 15 Years

Wechsler, and Michael Livingston Highlights: Farmers planted about 170 million acres of GE crops in 2013—principally corn, cotton, and soybeans—representing about half of the U.S. farmland used to grow crops. Pest management traits are the main feature engineered into GE crops grown, but over time, traits providing protection against additional pests and seeds combining several traits have been introduced and quickly adopted by farmers. Findings suggest that Bt seeds have increased yields and reduced insecticide use, and herbicide tolerant seeds have enabled farmers to substitute less toxic herbicides in place of more toxic alternatives and facilitated the adoption of conservation tillage.

USDA 03/08/15 How the Federal Government Regulates Biotech Plants. USDA's Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS)Within USDA, the Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) is responsible for protecting agriculture from pests and diseases.

USDA 03/08/15 How the Federal Government Regulates Biotech Plants

Under the Plant Protection Act, USDA-APHIS has regulatory oversight over products of modern biotechnology that could pose such a risk. Accordingly, USDA-APHIS regulates organisms and products that are known or suspected to be plant pests or to pose a plant pest risk, including those that have been altered or produced through genetic engineering. These are called "regulated articles. " USDA-APHIS regulates the import, handling, interstate movement, and release into the environment of regulated organisms that are products of biotechnology, including organisms undergoing confined experimental use or field trials. Regulated articles are reviewed to ensure that, under the proposed conditions of use, they do not present a plant pest risk through ensuring appropriate handling, confinement and disposal.

USDA 02/08/16 Biotechnology Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

What is Agricultural Biotechnology? Agricultural biotechnology is a range of tools, including traditional breeding techniques, that alter living organisms, or parts of organisms, to make or modify products; improve plants or animals; or develop microorganisms for specific agricultural uses. Modern biotechnology today includes the tools of genetic engineering. 2. How is Agricultural Biotechnology being used? Biotechnology provides farmers with tools that can make production cheaper and more manageable.

Many other types of crops are now in the research and development stages. Genetically engineered plants are also being developed for a purpose known as phytoremediation in which the plants detoxify pollutants in the soil or absorb and accumulate polluting substances out of the soil so that the plants may be harvested and disposed of safely.

ERS USDA 09/07/15 Recent trends in GE adoption. Herbicide-tolerant (HT) crops, developed to survive application of specific herbicides that previously would have destroyed the crop along with the targeted weeds, provide farmers with a broader variety of options for effective weed control.

ERS USDA 09/07/15 Recent trends in GE adoption

Based on USDA survey data, HT soybeans went from 17 percent of U.S. soybean acreage in 1997 to 68 percent in 2001 and 94 percent in 2014. Plantings of HT cotton expanded from about 10 percent of U.S. acreage in 1997 to 56 percent in 2001 and 91 percent in 2014. The adoption of HT corn, which had been slower in previous years, has accelerated, reaching 89 percent of U.S. corn acreage in 2014. Insect-resistant crops containing the gene from the soil bacterium Bt (Bacillus thuringiensis) have been available for corn and cotton since 1996.

These bacteria produce a protein that is toxic to specific insects, protecting the plant over its entire life. FDA - 2015 - Biotechnology Consultations on Food from GE Plant Varieties.

The tables below for corn, cotton, and soybeans, provide data obtained by USDA's National Agricultural Statistics Service (NASS) in the June Agricultural Survey for 2000 through 2013. Many people are interested in information about global genetically engineered (GE) acreage. USDA does not collect these data. Estimates are produced by the International Service for the Acquisition of Agri-biotech Applications (ISAAA) and can be found in the report, Global Status of Commercialized Transgenic Crops: 2013. See more on recent trends in GE adoption, and documentation to the data.
