The surprisingly rapid growth in the area planted with transgenic crops faces agricultural producers with on enormous challenge according to James (2000) the total area planted with such crops in the world increased from 7 million to nearly million hectares between 1996 and 1999
The united states Canada and Argentina accounted for 98% of the total area planted with transgenic seeds in the years 2000 in the year 100% of the area planted with such crops corresponded to soya beans ,maize cotton and canola in the year 2000 the united states environmental protection EPA warned growers of modified maize they must reserve between 20% and 50 % of the cultivated area for traditional products in order to help stop the increase I transgenic crops
At the same time the cultivation of transgenic crops can cause socio economic change in less developed countries by displacing lab our from one of its principal economic activities in those countries an important source of employment is the cultivations of staple crops such as maize and the can displacement of the lab our force employed in this can endanger the livelihood of a considerable part of the popularities
