The National Agricultural Statistics Service conducts the June Agricultural
Survey in all States each year. Randomly selected farmers across the United
States were asked if they planted corn, soybeans, or upland cotton seed that,
through biotechnology, is resistant to herbicides, insects, or both.
Conventionally bred herbicide resistant varieties are excluded. Insect
resistant varieties include only those containing bacillus thuringiensis
(Bt). The Bt varieties include those that contain more than one gene that
can resist different types of insects. Stacked gene varieties include only
those containing biotech traits for both herbicide and insect resistance.
The States published individually in the following tables represent
85 percent of all corn planted acres, 87 percent of all soybean planted
acres, and 93 percent of all upland cotton planted acres.
