Abstract:
Genetically Modified crops are the fasted adopted agricultural technology in the history of agricultural development. It is 100 times folds from 1.7 to 190 million hectares since last two decade from 1996 to 2018. It is a promising, relevant, safe and efficient technology with low-input and high-output agriculture for crop improvement and agricultural development where conventional breeding tools have not been successful. It is an important technology to improve agricultural crops with desirable traits for their nutritional value, nutrient and water use efficiency, productivity, and tolerance/resistance to biotic and abiotic stresses. But with the passing of time some Scientific Community, farmers organization and NGOs are having negative and positive attitude towards G M crops. That’s why there is need of a scale by which we can measured the Attitude of farming Communities towards it. Hence a scale on attitude has been developed based on the summated rating scale that consist 15 items of all the dimensions of G M crops.
