What are the benefits?

  • Plants can be genetically changed to be insect repellents, or they can be designed to withstand harsh weathers.
  • Animals can be modified to give more of whatever product they are providing.
  • Plants can be modified to give more nutrition.
  • Many plants can be modified to use less fertilizers and chemicals.
  • Since GMOs are changed based on their environment, they can save resources that are scarce in that environment, such as water.
