    Thank you. I'll look over the items you linked to. While the existing commercialized biotech traits have had the benefit of expanding utilization of no-till/minimum till cultivation practices, which is plus for farmers and all of us, applying biotech only in areas for which there can be a commercial justifcation of the investment to develop and obtain regulatory approval, in my view limits the value of biotech. I have been interested in how dispersed the ownership and licensing of the technology is and can be, and particularly with the prospects of biotech traits being developed in the public domain. I just finished reading "Tommorrow's Table" by Pam Ronald and her husband, an organic farmer, that suggests possible applications of biotech not only compatible with, but even complementary to, sustainable agricultural and resource stewardship. That's where the ultimate payoff lies.
