Rabobank: Gene-edited plants will grow in the next five years

A report by Rabobank shows that gene-edited fruits, vegetables, and other specialty crops will grow within the market over the next five years after consumer demand for improved traits increases.

Many countries like the U.S. treat gene-edited plants as conventional crops, but commercialization remains restricted in the European Union, Mexico, and New Zealand where they treat gene-edited plants like GMOs.

Experts say a surge in specialty crops could help the supply chain and production issues we have seen over the last couple of years.
