Abstract

THE "FIRST WAVE" OF GENETICALLY ENGINEERED (GE) CROPS WAS FOCUSED NEARLY exclusively on very high acreage crops and a handful of readily cloned, highly effective genes conferring insect resistance and herbicide tolerance (table 1). There were also a few instances of genetically engineered virus resistance in squash and papaya, but together they have accounted for less than 0.1% of transgenic acreage (Brookes and Barfoot 2006; James 2006).
