Dr. Yves Carrière, Looking back: Environmental impacts of genetically engineered crops

Dr. Yves Carrière is a world-renowned expert on the ecological impacts and management of genetically engineered crops. He will present the findings of a recent National Academy of Sciences report on the sustainability impacts of genetically engineered crops in the United States. He will also discuss the scientific record from the global use of herbicide- and insect-resistant crops, which were designed to reduce the use of pesticides, improve yields and provide economic benefits to farmers and consumers.
