    This report by Graham Brookes, founding director of PG Economics an independent organisation based in London, provides insight into the reasons why many farmers in Australia have adopted crop biotechnology and continue to use it in their production systems since the technology first became available on a commercial basis.

    It draws on the key findings relating to the global impact of genetically modified crops and focuses on the farm level economic impacts and the environmental effects associated with pesticide use and greenhouse gas emissions.
