How NGTs can contribute to sustainable food production in the EU
New Genomic Techniques (NGTs) have great potential to contribute to sustainable agri-food systems, in
line with the objectives of the EU Green Deal. The EU currently regulates NGT products under the legislation for Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs), which hinders the development and availability of NGT products for European farmers, and is negatively impacting EU innovation and competitiveness.
No plant product obtained by NGTs has been registered in the EU under this framework to date.
