Plant ETP’s Open letter to the EU Commission – Enabling the regulatory framework for conventional-like NGT plants
Plant ETP has sent an open letter to the EU Commission advocating for an enabling regulatory framework for conventional-like NGT plants i.e., that conventional-like NGT plants be regulated as conventional.
Plant ETP considers that such plants, if regulated as conventional, would be fully compatible with the EU organic farming legislation. As demonstrated during a lunch seminar held last February on “Breeding innovation for organics – How New Genomic Techniques could benefit the organic sector”, there is a growing number of stakeholders within the organic sector, including organic breeders and farmers, that share our view and would like the option to use conventional-like NGT plants, while maintaining their organic certification.
