innovation challenges for european agriculture
Abstract:With rising public concern over animal welfare, food safety and GM crops, Europe's farmers, breeders and food processors are caught in the eye of a storm. While some are 'returning to the soil' with traditional organic methods, others are breeding crops and animals using biotechnology, for markets as diverse as power generation and pharmaceuticals. For Europe's policymakers social and ecological sustainability are paramount, but public information is also a prerequisite for meaningful debate.
