CropLife Europe comment on New Genomic Techniques

On the 5th of July European Commission has released its’ proposal on plants obtained by certain new genomic techniques. CropLife Europe response to the new proposal:

New Genomic Techniques (NGTs) will contribute to the objectives of the EU Green Deal and Farm to Fork provided the EU urgently adopts a specific science-based regulatory framework.  

Such regulatory framework will encourage R&D investments and thus allow farmers to choose between different plant breeding techniques in the transition towards a more sustainable and resilient agriculture.
