I was at my seed companyâ€™s winter seminar a couple weeks ago and they were talking about Aphid resistant soy beans they are working on and said they should be available in 3 to 5 years. I assume these beans will be another variant of BT. They were also talking about the BT soy beans that had been approved for full scale trials in Brazil this year.
I just donâ€™t know what to think about gm crops. I know as a farmer how much less insecticide we spray on BT corn. But I donâ€™t know the long term effects of gm crops and unbiased research is hard to find.
