Abstract

The application of agricultural biotechnology
(agbio)* to plant breeding has been a major
success, leading to the rapid development of
new varieties of food, feed and fibre crops. Over
the past two decades, developed countries have
dominated agbio research into plant breeding and
plantings of GM crops. Yet within a decade or two,
developing countries could lead the developed
world in the number of hectares (ha) planted to
biotech, both GM and non-GM, plant varieties and
in agbio research.
This finding is one of the conclusions reached
in a new report due in April 2009: The bioeconomy
to 2030: designing a po/icy agenda, published by
the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and
Development (OECD).'
