Genetically modified corn affects its symbiotic relationship with non-target soil organisms

Genetically modified corn affects its symbiotic relationship with non-target soil organisms | Broad Canvas | Scoop.it
An increasing number of crops commercially grown today are genetically modified (GM) to resist insect pests and/or tolerate herbicides.

Although there are many benefits to using biotechnology in agriculture, such as potentially reducing insecticide use, there may be unintended side effects. . . .
