Main objective of production/use of herbicide resistant genetically modified crops is to reduce herbicide accumulation of food articles for healthy safety. Traditional farming methods rely on aggressive use of herbicides to stop weeds from encroaching upon the nutrients that are essential for the crops being grown. These herbicides had a tendency to run off into water bodies and biomagnify into the food chain thereby affecting humans adversely. The advent of GM crops that are weed resistant eliminates this issue by ensuring that such chemicals do not accumulate into food articles.
