US and South American farmers unite to support biotechnology in the European Union

Farmers who produce 90 percent of the world’s soybean exports have joined forces to support biotechnology in the European Union.

Soybean farmers from the U.S. and their counterparts from Argentina, Brazil, Paraguay and Uruguay, though competitors in global soy trade, are presenting a united front in meetings with members of the European Union food and feed chain and representatives of the EU government. The farmers, part of a group formed in 2007 known as the International Soy Growers Alliance, plan to discuss the importance of biotechnology to feed a growing population and how slow government approval processes and restrictions based on nonscientific reasoning cause trade disruption.
