A farmer’s perspective: Producing food and fiber for an unforgiving world
MetadataShow full item record
Erickson, David C.
The biotechnology industry failed to make the system transparent, and failed to get all of the “stakeholders” involved. Farmers need predictability in the products they buy and that they can sell them. This means there is a need for global acceptance of the processes that review and regulate the products of biotechnology. It also means that farmers can count on solid rules that do not constantly change. Issues of patents, identity preservation and regulatory approval must be resolved before the crop is marketed.
