The outlook for GMO crop varieties seems uncertain at this crucial juncture. Will farmers continue to embrace GMO crop varieties, given marketing uncertainties and concerns? Or will many farmers discontinue the use of GMOs, as suggested in our previous study? To help to answer these questions, the UW-Madison Program on Agricultural Technology Studies (PATS) has surveyed a panel of randomly selected corn or soybean producers each year since 1998. The most recent follow-up survey was conducted and completed in the winter and spring of 2001. We summarize our basic findings of the 2001 study in this report.
