I'm not exactly sure what you mean by this.
in 2006, 89% (up almost 1000% since 1997 where only 8% were) of the soybeans grown in the US were genetically modified to be "roundup ready" or resistant to conventional herbicides and pesticides. That sounds bad, but it allows for no-till farming which greatly reduces soil erosion.
That being said, we buy organic.
