Genetic modification has not failed or entirely succeeded in the 21st century agriculture but is bound to stay beyond 21st century. The battle front is still hot. The stakeholders: companies, investors, farmers, regulators, government, consumers, media and the entire world population of over 6 billion with over 5 billion hungry are still at loggerhead on the novelty or absurdity of genetic modification. In view of the fact that majority of these people are hungry, and desirous of anything called food; there is every tendency that the micro GM patented companies and investors will carry the CENTURY and beyond. According to Igbo-Nigerian proverb "If one is empty handed fighting for land, those with yams will continue to seed the land". While the debate rages, the money conglomerates companies will continue to invest on their GM technologies and the hungry and angry 5 billion populace of the world have no option, than to grudgingly buy and consume their foods. So, who is the winner. You have the answer.
