In summary for the Soybean records in US agriculture demonstrated in these graphs, GM round-up Ready Soybean has resulted in no fewer number of herbicides being used, a doubling the quantity per acre on 75 million more acres with perhaps a 20% increase in average yield.
In 1992 my eldest daughter was 2, in 2014 my youngest daughter was 16. They do not know life without GM crops and glyphosate exposure in industrial food. It remains to be seen the consequences of this exponential increase in glyphosate load has on my unborn grandchildren. Personally, I can’t see the benefits in yield and necessity that the chemical and GM seed manufacturers would have us believe.
