Abstract or Summary
At the request of the Council of Science and Technology, this paper considers the recent
developments in the science of GM crops since the Royal Society published its report
‘Reaping the Benefits – Sustainable Intensification of Global Agriculture’ in 2009, which
concluded GM crops (alongside other methods) have an important role to play in sustainable
and productive agriculture globally. Since then, other more extensive studies have come to a
similar conclusion (Foresight, 2010).
