Study: GM cotton has halved eco-impact

Written by John Mowbray

SANTA BARBARA – Researchers in California say the environmental impact of cotton production on the health of freshwater systems in the USA has halved within that past decade thanks to the use of GM crops. The study says this is because planting GM cotton has reduced the use of pesticides and the findings can now also offer new insight when making more informed decisions on Life Cycle Analysis based studies.
