September 27, 2012: The Future of Generic Biotech Crops

Posted By Ryan Young On September 27, 2012 @ 7:45 am In All Episodes | Comments Disabled

Senior Fellow Greg Conko [1] discusses his new paper [2], “Is There a Future for Generic Biotech Crops? Regulatory Reform Is Needed for a Viable Post-Patent Industry.” Patents will soon expire for several popular biotech crops, opening the way for cheaper generic versions. But because, unlike prescription drugs, biotech crops have to be re-approved every few years, the future of generic biotech crops is very much in doubt. Conko recommends getting rid of re-approval requirements to put them on the same footing as other products.
