About Diego

I am currently an M.Sc in Agricultural Economics candidate from the University of Saskatchewan's department of Bioresource Policy, Business and Economics. I joined the program in September 2014 after obtaining my degree in Agricultural Engineering from the Catholic University of El Salvador. The title of my research is “The Potential Impacts of GM Crop Adoption in El Salvador”. Biotechnology has become a very controversial topic since the first genetically modified crop approved for sale in the U.S. in 1994. GM (Genetically Modified) Crops do not enjoy the best of reputations, what is seldom known by the general public is that the general scientific consensus is that GM crops pose no greater risk to human or animal health than conventional crops do. With world population increasing and climate change coming into sharper focus, farmers worldwide need technologies to adapt and produce more food in ever shrinking farmland. This is especially true for developing countries and this is the aim of my research, to provide evidence of benefits that would arise from adopting GM crops in El Salvador, the smallest and most densely populated country in Central America with shrinking farmland due to population expansion, a perfect case study for many developing countries.
