Six agricultural biotechnology firms will launch today a website that seeks to promote biotech crop transparency. The site will publish safety data about biotech products and will allow consumers to ask any questions regarding biotech crops. It will be run by the Council for Biotechnology Information, whose members include Monsanto, Dow Chemical, Syngenta, DuPont, BASF and Bayer CropScience. "We have not done a very good job communicating ... . We want to get into the conversation," said Cathleen Enright, the council's executive director and BIO's executive vice president for food and agriculture.
