Abstract or Summary
Argentina is one of the leading countries at a global level in the use of genetically modified (GM) crops in agriculture. Currently, it grows about 24.5 million hectares of transgenic soybeans, maize and cotton crops with different combinations of tolerance to herbicides and insect resistance. The incorporation of these technologies began by mid 1990′s, almost at the same time as the first one of them – glyphosate herbicide tolerant soybean – became available at international level and it has continued until the present, to currently represent almost the total planted area with these crops. This almost unprecedented ……..
