Agricultural producers from Iowa, Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota, and
Wisconsin were surveyed on their views toward agricultural biotechnology and
their farming practices. The most divergent attitudes were North Dakota and
South Dakota. Respondents from these two states differed on their attitudes
toward crop preference, the regulation of genetically modified (GM) crops
through moratoria, and their views toward GM crops and other genetically
modified organisms (GMOs) as a positive scientific advancement.
