Caption: Herbicide resistant soya plants. Young soya plants being sprayed with the herbicide Roundup. These are genetically modified (GM) Roundup Ready soya plants (Glycine max), where they have had a gene introduced by genetic engineering that allows resistance to this herbicide. A crop of Roundup Ready soya can therefore be sprayed with the herbicide to kill weeds, but without damaging the soya plants. This theoretically increases soya bean yields, but there is concern over the safety of GM foods. Photographed in Tennessee, USA.
