Current trends in the global market of transgenic plants and environmental safety issues

Current trends in the global market of transgenic plants and environmental safety issues The world market for the first generation of transgenic crops (insecticidal and herbicide-resistant plants) has been expanding since 2012, mostly owing to developing countries. The cautious attitude in the majority of economically developed countries to the first-generation transgenic agricultural crops is due to several objective circumstances: the negative impact of insecticidal Bt-crops on useful and endangered invertebrate species, the allergenic properties of Bt-toxin for humans, toxicity of glyphosate to humans and animals, the widely spreading resistance of weeds to glyphosate, the increasing resistance of–harmful–insects to insecticidal Bt-plants, the danger of–genetic pollution–of aboriginal plant varieties, and the flow of herbicide resistance traits to weed plants.
