For many centuries farming was treated only as a source of food. Farmers aimed primarily at producing more and more food through using new technologies. Technologies of GMO plants production are conditioned by the need of increasing production while reducing use of pesticides. In the field of process innovations, the technologies using GM plants are the source of intensive emotions. On one hand their production is required by the times we live in, as there is a huge demand for soy products and biofuel on the market which cannot be supplied by existing technologies. One should also consider the fact that, for a significant group of farmers, technologies of the GM plants cultivation is the only option guaranteeing them sufficient income to earn their living. On the other hand, a significant part of consumers has a plethora of doubts about the GMO technologies. Therefore, it seems that in the nearest future people will be forced to apply this kind of innovation in agriculture.
