CropLife Australia commends the Australian Government for having the foresight to examine the potential for enabling technologies to address Australia’s major national challenges. CropLife views the Enabling Technologies Roadmap as vital for guiding the development of national investment in agricultural biotechnologies to help sustain Australia’s global competitiveness and commercialisation of value‑added goods and services.
CropLife’s submission focuses on those parts of the Roadmap that relate to the opportunities, barriers and risks of agricultural biotechnologies. It also takes the opportunity to provide some updated data where available.
