Data about gene escape by seeds and volunteers were compiled for the first time in one study for several crops, i.e. wheat (Triticum aestivum), sugar beet (Beta vulgaris), oilseed rape/canola (Brassica napus) and maize (Zea mays). These species represent important genetically modified (GM) crops...

Transgenic glufosinate- and glyphosate-resistant crops are currently commercialized, and bromoxynil-resistant crops have been removed from the market for economic reasons. Glyphosate-resistant cotton and soyabean have become dominant in those countries where they have been approved for planting....

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...
