In 2018, the government of the United Kingdom disagreed with the European Court of Justice ruling that genome-edited organisms should be regulated the same way as genetically modified organisms even when the outcome was a product of traditional breeding methods. This led to an interest in reviewing the regulation of genome editing, which requires changing the definition of a GMO in legislation.

Bt eggplant event EE-1 is resistant to eggplant fruit and shoot borer, the most destructive pest of eggplant. It was developed by experts from the Institute of Plant Breeding of the University of the Philippines Los Baños, making it the first Filipino biotech product. A commercial planting approval is necessary before farmers in the Philippines can avail themselves of the benefits of the Bt crop.

Yam is a very important crop in Africa but its industry is continuously threatened by fungal diseases that cause 50-90% of tuber yield loss. To help address this, scientists came up with a review that details the potentials of modern biotechnology tools to produce fungus-resistant cultivars without having to undergo the stringent process of traditional breeding. Yam anthracnose caused by Colletotrichum alatae is a devastating fungal disease in West Africa

A study conducted by Wageningen University and Research reveals more than 820 million people in the world do not have enough food, while climate change and increasing competition for land and water are further raising concerns about the future balance between food demand and supply. The study published in the journal Nature Food focused on the two key food security indicators, future food demand, and population at risk of hunger.

Researchers from CSIRO, together with 2Blades Foundation, reported a gene in the stem rust fungus that triggers resistance in the host plant, providing a clue for scientists to develop disease-resistant wheat varieties. Their findings are published in Nature Plants. Wheat is one of the most important crops globally and provides about 20 percent of calories and protein for human nutrition. Stem rust, a virulent wheat disease caused by Puccinia graminis f. sp. tritici (Pgt),

Bt eggplant event EE-1 is resistant to eggplant fruit and shoot borer, the most destructive pest of eggplant. It was developed by experts from the Institute of Plant Breeding of the University of the Philippines Los Baños, making it the first Filipino biotech product. A commercial planting approval is necessary before farmers in the Philippines can avail themselves of the benefits of the Bt crop. These benefits include less dependence and exposure to insecticides, improved marketable yield, better income, and peace of mind for farmers.

The Director-General of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), QU Dongyu, today reiterated his call for more investment in rural areas and actions to end hunger and poverty at the Pre-Summit of the UN Food Systems Summit. He made the appeal at one the Pre-Summit's special events organised by FAO and Italy "From the G20 Matera Declaration to the Food Systems Summit: A Framework for Emerging Coalitions of Action",

Researchers from The University of Western Australia (UWA) and The UWA Institute of Agriculture in collaboration with the University of Melbourne have developed tools to identify plant genes that are resistant to disease-causing fungi and deploy them to create more resistant crops.The researchers looked at the evolution of the resistance genes against blackleg to develop a durable resistance mechanism to the disease.

Nigerian scientists and partners met in Abuja to commence compiling a dossier for the national performance trial on genetically engineered (GE) rice called nitrogen-efficient, water-efficient, salt-tolerant (NEWEST) rice. The final dossier will be submitted to the National Biosafety Management Agency, which is tasked to regulate GE crops in the country.

Experts from the American Association of Veterinary Medical Colleges (AAVMC) and the Association of Public and Land-grant Universities (APLU) call for remodeling of the regulatory landscape to unleash enormous gains in productivity through gene editing in agricultural animals. They highlighted this call in the AAVMC/APLU Gene Editing in Agriculture Task Force Report.
