Aliens in the Field

Synopsis
Programme examining the benefits and drawbacks of using genetically modified crops in the developing world. India’s farmers have been attracted by claims of higher yields, while Zambia refused desperately needed food aid because it was GM. Argentina, on the other hand, has enthusiastically embraced GM crops, sowing half of its land with GM soya. Earth Report went to these three countries to find out how genetically modified crops are changing the world.
