Environmental ImpactsResearch has shown many significant environmental benefits of GM crops such as a reduction in the use of pesticides, greenhouse gas emission, and soil erosion.

DevelopmentAdvancements in technology has continuously changed the ways of living through the alteration and improvement in the productivity and quality of products.

This development in biotechnology has allowed for the use of genetically modified organisms in the production of pharmaceutical drugs, agriculture, and medical research.
