A potent weapon of genetically improved foods’ opponents has been the claim that transgenic food crops have a tendency to behave like invasive weeds, crowding out naturally-occurring species. A 10-year research study just released in the UK should put that old saw to rest. Researchers at England’s Imperial College planted genetically-enhanced crops in 12 different habitats all around Great Britain. Their results show that even the hardiest of modified plants had no real survival advantage over conventional plants.
