I assume you mean genetically modified, since anything that grows does so based on its genetic material. No, genetically modified crops do not take any longer to grow than their naturally-selected counterparts. When growing corn, for example, the farmer can choose from a fairly wide selection of maturity lengths, both in normal and in genetically modified.

One problem GMO crops pose for farmers who do not grow them is cross pollination of GMOs in non-GMO crops, especially those that are grown organically.

In the United States, genetically modified foods have been declared to be "substantially equivalent" to non-GMO foods, so there are no differences in how they are grown. There are recommendations for GMO farmers to plant barriers of non-GMO crops to cut down on cross pollination of their crops with non-GMO crops, but these are just recommendations and are not enforced.
