Common GMO Crops Approaching Inevitable Failure? Flawed Assumptions Behind Multi-Toxin Biotech Crops, Researchers Warn | PlanetSave | CALS in the News | Scoop.it

Many of the assumptions that the use of GMO crops are based upon are not true, researchers at the University of Arizona have found. Specifically, the widely-used new strategy of planting GMO crops that produce two or more toxins to provide “redundant” killing of insect pests is based on assumptions that simply aren’t always true. These multi-toxin crops are “necessary” because of the increasing emergence of pests resistant to single toxins.
