A visual presentation of the 10 important highlights about biotech crops in 2014, taken from the ISAAA Brief 49 Global Status of Commercialized Biotech/GM Crops: 2014
BEIJING (Jan. 28, 2015) — In 2014, a record 181.5 million hectares of biotech crops were grown globally, an increase of more than six million hectares from 2013, according to a report released today by the International Service for the Acquisition of Agri-Biotech Applications (ISAAA). With the addition of Bangladesh, a total of 28 countries grew biotech crops during the year. The 20 developing and eight industrial countries where biotech crops are produced represent more than 60 percent of the world's population.
"The accumulated hectarage of biotech crops grown in 1996 to 2014 equals, roughly, 80 percent more than the total land mass of China," said Clive James, ISAAA Founder and report author. "Global hectarage has increased more than 100-fold since the first plantings of biotech crops."
