    Abstract

    The agricultural biotechnology revolution of the past two decades has provided the world with an opportunity to rapidly accelerate growth in the production of food, feed, fibre and biofuel crops as well as livestock. Yet this new technology's reach has been limited to date by the reluctance of many countries to embrace it, ostensibly for fear of its possible effects on the environment, on food safety, or on access to markets in countries not yet at ease with GMOs.
