Over 80 published papers and reviews that show the benefits of using agricultural biotechnology products are now available online in a Benefits Database shared by the Crop Life International through the Biosafety Information Resource Center of the Biosafety Clearing House (BCH). BCH is a an information exchange mechanism established by the Cartagena Protocol on Biosafety to assist Parties with implementing the treaty’s provisions to facilitate sharing of biotechnology information and experiences.
