In Perspective: GM crop field testing needed
Although mostly Asian markets reacted poorly to the U.S. GM wheat find by withdrawing purchases of U.S. wheat, other countries are pushing ahead with research. At some point GM wheat will be accepted in international trade circles.
But before that happens, research and field plots will need to be conducted so that scientists can capture the best data. Producing wheat and other staple crops is not going to get easier in the future. Science is working to develop new varieties and hybrids that will allow U.S. and other farmers to produce the crops needed to feed the world.
Without that research, many will suffer. Research is critical and crucial to advancing the tools that farmers need. Research needs to continue, and progress should not be destroyed.
