Assessing the environmental implications of agricultural biotechnologies: a sociological perspective

Other Titles

Abstract

There is no evidence that the public is becoming anti-science or anti-biotechnology. There have been no major changes in public trust in science over the past two decades. Agriculture has significant issues to address if it is to build on this trust. Many agricultural groups are active politically (in pursuit of “right to farm” legislation) in ways that many in the public find to be narrowly self-interested. Agriculture needs to reestablish itself as a public (rather than primarily a private) goods-generating set of institutions.
