Global Status of Approved Genetically Modified Plants
All of the information contained within this document is based on data obtained from our global database of genetically modified plants. As indicated elsewhere, the reader should be aware that this database includes not only plants produced using recombinant DNA techniques (e.g., genetically engineered or transgenic plants), but also plants with novel traits that may have been produced using more traditional methods, such as accelerated mutagenesis or plant breeding. These latter plants are only regulated in Canada.
Crops and Traits
The following table provides a listing of novel traits by crop species. In each case, the number of events with a particular trait is also provided. For additional information on each crop x trait combination, follow the relevant link under the “Crop Name” column.
