22 June 2014

The results of a recent U.N. Food and Agriculture (FAO) survey on genetically modified crops in international trade, reveals that trace amounts of genetically modified organisms (GMOs) are being detected with increasing regularity. The survey, conducted between February 2013 to June 2013, collected responses from 75 country officials. Participants were asked questions relating to internal GMO crop production, how GMO crops were labeled, and whether countries had domestic capacities to detect GMO crops.
