Abstract

The review considers the potential environmental risks associated with large-scale cultivation of various types of genetically modified forage crops. The results of the study of gene flow in forage grasses occurring in open ecosystems through the dissemination of transgenic pollen by wind and insects at different distances in the stands of forage plants. The necessary conditions for spatial isolation of transgenic and non-transgenic samples of forage crops from each other are described. The ecological, biological, and economic value of forage plants, as well as their ecological and environmental functions in agricultural landscapes, including the significant impact they have on the ecological status of ecological communities, contributing to the preservation and accumulation of organic matter in the biosphere are briefly discussed.
