European agriculture is being left behind because of its opposition to GM crops and nanotechnology, US officials have warned.
Speaking to the House of Lords Committee on Agriculture, Fisheries and Farming, officials from the US Department of Agriculture (USDA) said both technologies needed to be accepted by EU consumers to allow for ‘more sustainable agriculture' in the future.
‘I'm a little surprised and disappointed that agriculture, which began so strong in Europe hasn't taken a greater leap forward to being a part of the economy that might be if these new technologies and approaches were carried forward,' said USDA chief scientists Dr Roger Beachy.
He said scientists had to find ways to make new technologies like GM sound ‘non-threatening' to consumers.
