Grains Council pushing TTIP negotiators on EU biotech barriers

Bilaterals.org (‘Everything that’s not happening in the World Trade Organization’) tells us that some North American farmers want us, in Europe, to lighten up about rules. Allegedly, we’re up ouselves about biotechnology, including genetically modified (GM) crops. Allegedly.

Leaders of the US Grains Council (‘Developing markets, enabling trade, improving lives’) are pushing negotiators for the new Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) to keep the European Union from slowing biotechnology approval. If your computer and your ears allow listening, you can scroll down that page and click on a link to hear opinion from the Grains Council.

About argylesock

I wrote a PhD about veterinary parasitology so that's the starting point for this blog. But I'm now branching out into other areas of biology and into popular science writing. I'll write here about science that happens in landscapes, particularly farmland, and about science involving interspecific interactions. Datasets and statistics get my attention. Exactly where this blog will lead? That's a journey that I'm on and I hope you'll come with me.
