The 11 countries that produce the most genetically modified crops have understood their importance in today’s world. With over 800 million people currently living in poverty, the need for genetically modified crops has never been greater.

Genetically modified crops refer to crops whose DNA has been modified in order to give them a characteristic which is not naturally occurring in nature. This can allow the crops to be resistant to pesticides or herbicides while allowing some crops to produce more nutrients while others yet can be made resistant from different diseases. Generally, cotton, corn and soybean are some of the most produced genetically modified crops.

Due to the improvement in growth, many farmers have happily adopted genetically modified crops as well. In less than 20 years, the total production of genetically modified crops has grown by over 100 times. Even though scientists have unanimously agreed that genetically modified crops cause no harm in health, many still believe that that such crops are unsafe. The 11 countries that produce the most genetically modified crops know that this is not the case, and are as follows, according to figures reported by the International Service for the Acquisition of Agri-Biotech Applications.

The use of genetically modified crops has greatly increased Bolivia’s crop yield, especially soy, which is nearly 100% produced through genetically modified seeds. A law known as the Mother Earth law was passed in the country, which is against genetically modified crops, hence limiting its use in the country.
