Countries set aside rivalries for common goal

In every industry, there is competition--that's just the nature of a free market system.

The global wheat export business is no exception.

For many years, the international wheat market has been dominated by three major competitors; the United States, Canada and Australia. A recent announcement by the major wheat organizations of all three countries, though, has put those rivalries on a backburner, if only for a moment.

On May 14, the three countries announced their grower groups will work toward a synchronized commercialization of biotech traits in wheat, in order to minimize market disruption. While there is no commercial production of genetically modified wheat in the world, yet, the statement of this goal was a major step forward in the eventual path to commercialization of a biotech wheat variety.
