Abstract

This chapter consists of four sections. The first section presents statistics describing the scale and scope of HTV adoption, geographically and over time. The next section describes the range of arguments advanced to explain the adoption of HTVs by farmers. A third section is dedicated to the massive adoption of transgenic HTVs in the United States. A fourth section will present the specific social and legal contexts of HTV adoption in Europe.
