Anderson wants more Australian GM crops

Former deputy prime minister of Australia, John Anderson said in the Sydney Morning Herald that Australia is falling behind in the rapid world growth of more productive biotech crops, such as drought-tolerant and pest resistant strains.

Mr Anderson said, "If we are going to avoid an ugly stand-off over food versus fuel, we are going to have to spend a lot more on plant research because it is very likely that a large part of the answer on renewable energy will be biofuels."
