Biotechnology Guaranteed US$ 100 K To Average Brazilian Corn Growers In Four Years, According To ABRASEM

The amount of diesel fuel used in agricultural machinery for transgenic crops will also see a significant reduction over the next ten years that could be as high as 1.4 billion liters, enough to supply a fleet of 581,200 light vehicles. For carbon emissions resulting from the use of diesel oil, it is projected that about 3.7 million tons of CO2 would not be released into the atmosphere, which is the equivalent of preserving 27.3 million trees.

"The level of benefits increases as growers accelerate the adoption of biotechnology, a tool that is capable of contributing more sustainable farming practices that reduce pressure on natural resources," explains  Paula Carneiro , director of Celeres Ambiental and coordinator of the social-environmental study.

Study reaches sixth edition

This is the sixth edition of a study monitoring the benefits of biotechnology for Brazilian agriculture, which has been conducted annually for ABRASEM since 2008.  The evaluation is divided between economic benefits, analyzed by Celeres, and social-environmental benefits, addressed by Celeres Ambiental. These companies are the only ones in Brazil that regularly monitor the adoption of transgenics in agriculture – and have been doing so from the start. The results are based on field research and interviews with more than 360 growers of soybeans, corn and cotton scattered all over the country. These are the three crops in Brazil with approved GM events that are already available on the market.
