Vestal, Tom A.; Briers, Gary E.
Journal of Agricultural Education, v41 n4 p134-44 2000
A survey of 88 journalists from metropolitan newspapers found a low level of knowledge about food biotechnology. Most considered genetic modification of plants acceptable, of animals somewhat acceptable. They trusted university scientists as sources and believed farmers would accept food biotechnology sooner than consumers would. (Contains 31 references.) (SK)
