Agronomic and environmental impacts of the commercial cultivation of glyphosate tolerant soybean in the USA. Hin, C., J., A., Schenkelaars, P., & Pak, G., A. 2001.
abstract   bibtex   
[From Summary] From 1996 to 2000 the acreage of commercial cultivation of glyphosate-tolerant (GT) soybean increased considerably in the USA. Meanwhile public and political debates on agricultural biotechnology in Europe and other parts of the world gained intensity. In the course of time numerous studies, reports and articles on the agronomic and environmental benefits and risks of GT-soybean and other genetically modified crops commercially grown in the USA have been published. However reception of this information by different stakeholders in the public debate on agricultural biotechnology did not lead to consensual views on the agronomic and environmental benefits and risks of GT-soybean. In the media controversial discussions continued. Subsequently, in October 2000 a Working Committee “Impacts on agriculture and environment of commercial cultivation of GMO-crops in the USA: Case glyphosatetolerant soybean” has been installed. The following stakeholder organizations were represented in the Advisory Committee: Niaba / Dutch Biotechnology Industry Association, Productboards Margarine, Fats and Oils, Grain, Seeds and Pulses and Animal Feed, Vereniging Milieudefensie / Friends of the Earth the Netherlands, Greenpeace Netherlands, Consumer and Biotechnology Foundation and the Netherlands Society for Nature and Environment, Ministry of Agriculture. The Advisory Committee determined the objectives of the study and the criteria for evaluation of data. Subsequently, the Dutch Center for Agriculture and Environment (CLM) and Schenkelaars Biotechnology Consultancy (SBC) reviewed the literature, independent from the Advisory Committee. This review focussed on the agronomic and environmental consequences of GT-soybean in the USA. Potential human and animal health impacts of consumption of GT-soybean compared to those of conventional (CN) soybeans as well cultivation of soybean in other countries were beyond the scope of the study.
