The article claims higher yields from non-GM and "conventional outperforming GM seeds". Someone should tell the farmers. 90%+ of acreage is GM.
Truth be known the cited article by Benbrook was a statistical massaging of data that gave the result the author wanted to see. It was USDA data, but NOT a statement from the USDA as the first paragraph would lead you to believe.
Benbrook's a good guy, but has his own ideology that was satisfied by this research. I was disappointed to see how it was conducted, the assumptions it made and the extrapolations within.
A paper is in the works using legitimate statistical measures on actual data. It comes up with an different conclusion. When you use real data, you get a real result.
