Global Reports Confirm GM Crops Delivering Benefits to Farmers, Agriculture, and the Environment
The latest independent reports published by the International Service for the Acquisition of Agri-Biotech Applications (ISAAA) and UK-based PG Economics confirm that plant biotechnology continues to have significant benefits for farmers, communities, consumers, economies, and the environment, according to a media release on CropLife.org.au.
“The reports confirm the importance of Australian farmers being able to choose innovative, safe and approved technologies to remain globally competitive, meet the requirements of increased food demand, and farm sustainably in a changing and challenging climate,” said Matthew Cossey, Chief Executive Officer of CropLife Australia.
“Modern farming using biotechnology innovation plays an increasingly crucial role in food, feed and fibre production in Australia,” he continued. “These reports highlight the need to ensure non-science based and unnecessary costly regulation doesn’t hold Australia back from reaping the benefits and being a world leader in agricultural innovation.”
