Max Armstrong digs into the biotech market discussing which crops are genetically modified

Max Armstrong recalls a move by Congress to fund the Agricultural Biotechnology Education and Outreach Initiative to help consumers to understand genetically modified organisms. Max shares that GMO foods have been available since the early 1990s, and that three major agencies – EPA, USDA and the Food and Drug Administration – have worked to maintain safety. Max shares which crops are sold in the U.S. that are modified.

Farm Progress America is a daily look at key issues in agriculture. It is produced and presented by Max Armstrong, veteran farm broadcaster and host of This Week in Agribusiness.
