US: World Food Prize president circulates letter supporting biotechnology

Crop Life America joined a number of allies in signing on to a letter to World Food Prize president Kenneth Quinn in support of modern agriculture, specifically the role of biotechnology in helping to feed the world.

It also expresses appreciation for the theme and honorees of this year's World Food Prize.

The event, which will be held in Des Moines in mid-October, is unfortunately being criticized in some NGO activist circles for honoring three leaders in agricultural biotechnology research.

This letter serves a similar purpose as that which was signed last year and sent to the President supporting the role of ag innovation in feeding the world.

Public opinion surrounding GMOs seems to be slowly shifting, and this is just another step on the road to increasing public knowledge and consideration of the great potential of this technology.
