Abstract

Public debates about genetically modified crops have been riveting. We know that the implications of applying biotechnology to agriculture are profound, but societal consensus eludes us. The extreme rhetoric that has surrounded GM crops has created a chaotic array of misinformation, rumour and value judgements that has made it difficult for the public to reach even a majority opinion about the benefits and risks of these new technologies.
