Growers have rapidly adopted transgenic herbicide-resistant (HR) crops, such as canola (Brassica napus L.), soyabean [Glycine max (L.) Merr.], maize (Zea mays L.) and cotton (Gossypium hirsutum L.), across North America (USA and Canada) since their commercial introduction in the 1990s. With their...

Rice is the major staple food of the world's population. In 2003, more than 3 billion people depended on rice for food energy and protein. Global rice production has more than doubled since 1965. The production increase was largely the result of rising yields and of the expansion in rice-harvested...
