Biotechnology in Agriculture: A Full List of Resources to Understand GMOs

Arizona Farm Bureau is providing a one-stop shop for you to access resources about Biotechnology in Agriculture. 

Arizona Farm Bureau policy supports biotechnology in agriculture. The non-profit, non-partisan grassroots organization also supports organic and traditional agriculture. We celebrate it all!

We grow three biotech crops in Arizona: Cotton, Alfalfa and corn. They reduce pesticide use, improve farming productivity and are better for the environment.
