Genetically engineered crops can be produced at lower costs: Genetically modified crops have plants that are resistant to pests, diseases, water stress, among other things. Because of this resistance, the cost of producing these crops becomes smaller, since the farmer can stop using some agricultural inputs that were needed previously.
Some genetically engineered crops are resistant to harsh weather: A major impediment to increased food production was the impossibility of planting crops in environments with severe climates or abrupt changes in climate. But through genetic engineering it is possible to introduce some characteristics into living things. For this reason, some genetically modified crops are resistant to extreme climate regions.
Genetically modified organisms may be harmful to people: Genetic engineering is a relatively new science, so some controversy arises about genetically modified organisms. One such controversy is the claim that genetically modified organisms can cause harm to humans, this may be true, for that reason, before a genetically modified organism is released on the market, several tests are done to make sure that the organism is harmless .
