This has led to an acrimonious, longstanding and ongoing disagreement over the propriety of EU regulation of GMOs. North American and other farmers who had adopted GM crops widely in the 1990s found themselves unable to sell their products in the EU, and the biotechnology industry found an enormous market drifting out of reach. There is also a sense that there was much to play for, with the US and EU each trying to influence the choice of regulatory regime elsewhere in the world. Chapter 6 analyses some of the main challenges for the EU in justifying its GMO regulation before the WTO, including discussion of the 2006 Panel decision on the moratorium.
Non-profit organisations (rich universities, or charities and developing nation governments20) could be pressured to fill this gap, and China and India seem also to be special cases, technologically advanced states facing many of the challenges of a developing country. 21 Indeed, the possibility of feeding the world through GM is probably no less likely or imminent than mass redistribution of resources within and towards the developing world. It demands some humility. The same applies to the environmental potential of GMOs, currently somewhat hypothetical, but a possibility that merits consideration.
Indeed the phrase ‘agricultural biotechnology’ sometimes implies a continuum with modern applications of technology. In this book, ‘agricultural biotechnology’ is used in a more popular sense, specifically to refer to modern biotechnological techniques. In any event, I start from the position that we should simply be thinking much harder about modern applications of biotechnology than we have to about, for example, the use of Produced from Genetically Modified Organisms and amending Directive 2001/18/EC  OJ L 268/24.
