Abstract or Summary
The report provides insights into the reasons why many farmers in Australia have adopted crop biotechnology and continue to use it in their production systems since the technology first became commercially available. It draws on the key findings relating to the global impact of biotech crops and focuses on the farm level economic impacts and the environmental effects associated with pesticide use and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.
