Abstract/Contents:States that "topics that are receiving attention in turfgrass...are molecular genetics and genetically modified plants." Explains that "genes from different species of plants can now be transferred between the two, creating a transgeneic (genetically modified) plant...There are some economic, agronomic and environmental benefits to transgenic plants (biotech crops), but there can also be some disadvantages such as transferring a gene to a weedy species and developing a resistant weed."
