Biotech Executive Order Vital for U.S. Agriculture

Newsroom / June 12, 2019

The following statement regarding the Administration’s efforts to facilitate the innovation of agricultural biotechnology can be attributed to American Farm Bureau Federation President Zippy Duvall:

“Having an updated, transparent and scientifically sound regulatory system for agricultural biotechnology is critical if American farmers and ranchers are to meet the challenges of today and tomorrow.  I applaud President Trump for his Executive Order that will foster policy to spur agricultural innovation, encourage engagement and alignment at the global level and provide a firm foundation for the future of gene edited crops and animals.  Innovative solutions have been a creed for American agriculture for a long time and with yesterday’s action by the President, it ensures a framework and directive for agricultural innovation well into the future.”
