KANSAS CITY (B)--Consumers support the use of biotechnology in food production if it can provide benefits such as increasing nutritional value or reducing pesticide use, according to a study released Jan. 10 by the American Farm Bureau Federation.

The study, which was conducted by Roper Starch Worldwide and commissioned by the Farm Bureau and Philip Morris, involved surveying more than 1,000 consumers and 700 farmers on their views on modern farming.
