Genetically Modified Crops in Asia-Pacific

G T Gujar, Y Andi Trisyono, Mao Chen

Meeting future food needs without compromising environmental integrity is a central
challenge for agriculture globally, and growers worldwide are rapidly adopting GM crops, with
444 million acres produced globally in 2015.

Asia-Pacific countries play an important role, with India, China and Pakistan appearing in the
top 10 countries with acreage of genetically modified crops.

This book shows the progress of GM crop adoption across the Asia-Pacific
region over the past decade, and provides important insights for countries in
the process of adopting and regulating GM technology.

It provides an in-depth discussion of opportunities and challenges in different countries,
and for different crops within the region. Beyond this region, readers will benefit from
understanding how GM crops have been integrated into many different countries and,
in particular, the effects of the take up of GM cropping systems by farmers with different
socioeconomic backgrounds.

Provides a useful insight for stakeholders with an interest in Asia-Pacific Agriculture.
