Regulatory Barriers to the Development of Innovative Agricultural Biotechnology by Small Businesses and Universities
This report examines the current U.S. regulatory system for GE crops, compares it with those of major trading partners, and considers the effects it has on agricultural biotechnology.
Concern about rising prices and unstable sources of petroleum fuels is driving the search for U.S. domestically produced, renewable transportation fuels, such as biodiesel, which is developing into a widely accepted alternative fuel.
La presencia adventicia se refiere a la mezcla no intencional de cantidades mínimas de un tipo de semilla o producto, con otro. Aunque este proceso puede ocurrir con los cultivos obtenidos en forma tradicional, la presencia adventicia normalmente contempla las semillas y productos de ingeniería genética en un material que no la ha experimentado.
Adventitious presence refers to the unintended commingling of trace amounts of one type of seed, or product, with another. Although this process can occur with conventionally bred crops, adventitious presence is more commonly regarded as the presence of genetically engineered (GE) seed and product in non-GE material.
