How common are genetically engineered plants in agriculture today? Are
Bt-toxin producing transgenic plants currently in commercial production or
only at the development stage? How many genetically engineered plants are
available in the grocery store? I have only heard of the "flavor-saver
tomato". Are there others?
We have been discussing these issues in one of my classes and I don't know
the answers. It is a great topic for generating class discussion.
