Viewpoint: Regulating the ‘product’ not the ‘process’ — Canada’s revised genetic engineering regulations poised to open the door to crop innovation – Genetic Literacy Project

It’s been 30 years since Canada’s regulatory system for plant breeding innovation was last reviewed, but since then, genetically modified organisms (GMO) technology has become an important feature.

Viewpoint: Europe’s ‘Green’ activists wield McCarthy-era tactics by promoting ideology over science, undermining the push for sustainable food – Genetic Literacy Project

Calls for realistic and workable regulation of “new genomic techniques” (NGT or new breeding techniques, “NBT”) for plant breeding cannot be heard. Those who advocate for them are mouthpieces for “capitalist science” according to a Greens/EFA report from the European Parliament. Joseph McCarthy returns!

‘Globally we are no longer innovating’: Agricultural productivity is faltering — and that’s why we need to streamline regulations of new technologies – Genetic Literacy Project

The recently released 2022 Global Agricultural Productivity (GAP) Report tells a disturbing story: Growth in global agricultural productivity is in steep decline, a fact that should be of universal concern to environmentalists, hunger advocates, policymakers, and the general public alike.

Canada relaxes rules governing gene-edited crops – Genetic Literacy Project

Canadian health regulator Health Canada has published a fresh set of guidelines on gene-edited crops. The new instructions cover gene-edited crops that meet the criteria set for food that is not considered novel food could be treated the same way as conventional crops.
