     Scientists want to develop corn that more efficiently absorbs nutrients from the soil. They want to use GM corn to reduce the costly need for fertilizer. Scientists hope to produce a corn that grows in tough conditions, such as dry and poor soil and drought. This would be very beneficial in helping developing countries like Africa and Mexico. It would also help to keep the corn market going during poor years.
