68 POTATO GROWER | JANUARY 2020 2361-3Broekema12h.indd 1 7/18/19 3:09 PM WHAT WE CAN DO "We [at Syngenta] advocate with local governments for science-based, predictable regulatory systems," Huber says. "At the same time, we have internal processes to make sure our products are safe at very early stages. We're confident in the safety of our products by the time we take them to regulatory agencies." Huber hopes growers and retailers will learn what they can about biotech tools, get confident about their benefits, and then advocate for them. Munasifi recommends reaching out to government agencies and making them aware of how beneficial these tools are. "Talk with USDA, FDA and EPA and let them know it's important that the U.S. government is coordinated and consistent on its approach to gene editing," she says. "We need the U.S. to continue to coordinate its message internationally, too, so we can bring along other like- minded countries and embrace the technological advances in agriculture."
