Innovation in Plant Biotechnology


Information Sharing & Transparency in Plant Breeding

CropLife International member companies, and the seed industry more broadly, have a long history of developing healthy, productive, and safe plant and seed varieties. As the technologies used in the development of these varieties continue to evolve and grow, so does the policy and regulatory environment that governs their use. Ensuring the latest varieties can continue to reach farmers and deliver benefits to society while enabling trade and effective value chain interactions, requires dialogue and information sharing between the seed sector, government, grain trade, and other value chain members including food processors, retailers, and consumer groups.

Our members are committed to the responsible management of plant science products and utilizing best practices in their stewardship with plant breeding innovations, both at pre- and post-commercial stages. Read our full position on transparency and information sharing.
