When will Europe’s politicians listen?

Results of a global poll run in six global farmer magazines…

“…37.1% of the total votes, new technologies and genetic modification were by far the most popular of the five presented key factors. The remaining votes were split between broader expertise through education and training (20.3%), investment in research and development (18%), removal of trade barriers (14.7%), and government intervention in food production (10%).”

“Throughout history, farmers have used new technologies in order to meet the needs of society… things are no different today.”

~ Morten Nielsen, Director of Agricultural Biotech at EuropaBio
