We investigated the responses to soil carbon after 8 yr of genetically engineered (GE) crop production. Soil organic carbon contents were similar, but δ13C levels in SOC were lower in corn-canola rotation than in monoculture corn, whether GE or conventional crops were grown. GE crop production had no effect on soil carbon content and δ13C level.
