Corporations, such as Monsanto, Dow, Syngenta, Bayer, and Pioneer (as well as others) genetically modify plants. Usually, the modifications are to cause a crop to be resistant to a specific herbicide, or to produce an insecticide in the crop itself. Farmers grow the GM crops, food companies use the GMO crops in their foods, and the grocery stores sell those foods to the consumers.
