Genetically modified crops, also called transgenic plants or GMO, have been in existence for over thirty years and have been used in agriculture for more than twenty years. They now represent more than 12% of the land cultivated globally and they are one of the main topics of media discussion about agriculture.

In this session the world of science and the world of media will try to clear the air.
