Question 3

(08.06 MC)

Subsistence farmers are threatened by the increasing use of genetically modified crops because these crops

make land more profitable to use, resulting in eviction by landlords who want to profit from the land

require less labor to cultivate, resulting in a shift of the agricultural workforce into industrial labor
