President Working to Modernize the Regulatory Framework for Agricultural Biotech Products

New policy outlined to benefit U.S. agriculture

President Donald Trump issued an Executive Order this week to help promote the modernization of the regulatory framework for agricultural biotechnology products. The 10-section order lays out the reasoning behind its necessity, defines what is being addressed, and lays out a strategy to better regulate the use of biotechnology within the United States' agricultural fields.

According to the executive order, biotechnology has the potential to revolutionize agriculture in the U.S. to improve the quality of life for Americans. The president is hoping that this new strategy to regulate the use of biotechnology will help with food production needs, enhance food safety, and benefit the American farmer.
