Will Golden Rice result in changed cultivation practices that could have adverse environmental impact?

Agronomically, GR2E Golden Rice is unchanged from conventional rice. The local cultivation practices currently followed for conventional rice varieties, including the application of fertilizer, crop protection products, and labor, are directly applicable to the cultivation of those varieties containing the GR2E nutritional trait. There will be no changes in either the type of production input, or in amounts, with the cultivation of GR2E Golden Rice varieties.

No changes in farm management or cultivation practices are anticipated should GR2E Golden Rice be adopted in agriculture in the future.
