At the recent 4th Partnerships in Biocontrol, Biostimulants & Microbiome Congress: USA we heard a number of interesting presentations on how plant and soil microbiome research is identifying microbes to enhance crop productivity and disease resistance.
Thanks to some of our speakers, we have made the following slides discussing the current regulatory landscape from Sarah Caffery, Keith Matthews, and Terry Stone available to view.

The application of crop biotechnology in agriculture has permitted an enhanced level of income to farmers and environmental benefits, while also reducing cropland expansion. Insect-protected crops, such as corn, showed more than 10% increase in yield worldwide and insect-protected corn and cotton augmented farm income by >$56 billion between 1996 and 2001.
There are important factors to consider to ensure the value and the benefits of these products. These relate to their mode of delivery from suppliers to end users, including correct shipping, storage as well as user education.
