Euroseeds Releases Open Reply to European Greens on New Genomic Techniques

Euroseeds, a group representing more than 36 national member
associations and 67 direct company members in the European Union
advocates for science-based decision-making with the aim of contributing
to a fair and proportionate regulation of the European seed sector,
freedom of choice for customers, and effective protection ofintellectual
property rights.

Euroseeds is responding to the European Greens/EFA group and their
recent report with the following points:

* NGTs applications are versatile and can be used in the development
of a wide range of different products. One type of product is GMOs,
however, other types of newgenomicstechniques (NGT)-derived plants
are similar to those that could occur in nature or developed through
conventional breedingmethods.
* There is a broad scientific consensus that the applications of NGTs
resulting in conventional-like plants are also as safe as
conventional breeding (EFSA, Scientific opinion on plants developed
using SDN-1&2 and ODM).
* It is not possible to distinguish NGT-derived plants from products
that were developed by using conventional breeding processes that do
not lead to regulated GMO products (as confirmed by the joint
research center of the EU, JRC, as well as the European network of
GMO laboratories).

Euroseeds reiterates its commitment to more sustainable agriculture and
plant breeding with a proven track record of contributing to this goal.
â??The EC's study shows that there is a broad scientific consensus about
NGTs and that's why we will continue advocating for our members' efforts
on this very important topic�, says Garlich von Essen, Secretary General
of Euroseeds.
