Wingenbach, Gary J.; Rutherford, Tracy A.; Dunsford, Deborah W.
Journal of Agricultural Education, v44 n4 p80-93 2003
Agricultural communications students (n=330) from 11 universities were most aware of biotechnology effects on food, less aware of effects on health and the environment. They were somewhat accepting of genetic modifications for plants, not humans. Sources of biotechnology knowledge were science classes, labs, and university professors' beliefs.
