Abstract or Summary
Soybean currently is the most traded agricultural product in the world, both with regard to volume and value. Because of its high protein content and the rising demand for protein-rich animal feed, soybean acreage has increased spectacularly in South American countries such as Brazil and Argentina. Soybean is moreover the crop that has undergone the most noticeable changes over the last 16 years as a result of the introduction of genetically modified soybean. Of all the genetically modified crops, herbicide resistant crops and particularly glyphosateresistant soybean have received the most attention. Argentina was one of the first countries to produce biotech crops commercially and, as an emerging economy, it is the main producer of herbicide resistant soybean
