These chemicals are vital
because they offset or prevent the losses from weeds, pests, and
diseases. Hopefully with new technologies, biotechnology being one of
them, plants will be created that can grow and survive without the use
of these environmentally harmful chemicals (Hileman 14). While many
people agree that biotechnology will be at least part of the solution,
they are also concerned about the safety of transgenic organisms that
are released into the environment (Barker 126).
