Genetic engineering has been proposed to be a transformative technology, necessary for ensuring that agriculture is sustainable and productive in coming decades. It began in the mid-1980s, almost 30 years ago, and the first commercialized GE crops were grown in the mid-1990s, about 16 years ago. This history provides a record that is now long enough to begin to evaluate the benefits, and to understand the potential of this technology.
