US Biotech Crops Alliance Discuss Commercial PossibilitiesAugust 5, 2015
The U.S. Biotech Crops Alliance's Working Group met in Montreal, Canada, last week to recommit to address any worldwide regulatory risks on the commercial possibilities of biotechnology for the next three years. During the meeting, representatives worked together to create an understanding of both the biotechnology derived products which have or may gain U.S. regulatory approval, their international approval status and possible market risks in an attempt to help farmers understand the status of new products in world markets before they plant these varieties. The group also discussed the robust trait pipelines for both corn and soybean in the coming years.
