TRANSGENIC CROPS

TRANSGENIC CROPS

Charles Hagedorn - Extension Specialist - Biotechnology


These bulletins provide updates on the commercialization of transgenic crops and were designed primarily for producers in Virginia. However, information on crop production issues, availability, and performance of transgenic crops will be applicable to anyone with interests in these topics. This website was initiated in 1996, each article has been dated for reader convenience, and this effort is supported by the VIRGINIA COOPERATIVE EXTENSION SERVICE.

This site also includes a brief list of links to other sites that contain information on transgenic crops.
