Biotechnology is fastest adopted crop technology in modern ages

Farmers in 28 countries planted a record 181.5 million hectares last year – up from 175.2 million in 2013. For the third straight year, developing countries grew the majority of biotech crops.

Overall biotech has increased crop production and improved farm incomes by $133 billion since the first varieties were planted in 1996.
