The annual report by agricultural economists Brookes and Barfoot is a helpful resource to understand the impacts of agricultural biotechnology. The peer-reviewed report is dense, and contains substantial information about crop use, yields, production statistics, and ag input use worldwide. It is a tremendous resource for hard data for discussing crops and the crop protection chemistries used. Today’s podcast is an interview with Dr. Graham Brookes, the lead author of the report. We discuss international technology adoption, pesticide use, weed control, carbon benefits, and effects on land use.
