A growing body of research evidence indicates that biotech crops are delivering higher yields and better economic performance for farmers around the world.

In a peer-reviewed article that appears in the April 2010 edition of Nature Biotechnology magazine, Janet E. Carpenter writes that the accumulated evidence from farmer surveys helps to explain the widespread and growing popularity of biotech crops. In her research article, Carpenter, who has worked on issues related to agricultural biotechnology for more than ten years, provides analysis of 49 peer-reviewed publications reporting on farmer surveys that compare yields and other indicators of economic performance for adopters and non-adopters of currently commercialized biotech crops.
