  • This case study of Mexico examines developments in agricultural biotechnology against the background of recent changes in macro-economic, environmental and agricultural policies as well as in the regulation of the seeds industry, intellectual property protection and biosafety.

The study suggests that, under current conditions, biotechnology is likely to benefit only those producers already taking advantage of relatively complex technological packages and to bypass small farmers and peasants. It concludes with recommendations for the establishment of a biotechnology policy for the agriculture sector ...

L'auteur avance que, dans les conditions actuelles, les biotechnologies pourraient ne bénéficier qu'aux producteurs qui sont déjà en mesure de tirer avantage d'ensembles technologiques relativement complexes, tandis que les petits paysans en seraient écartés. En conclusion, il formule des recommandations pour élaborer une politique des biotechnologies au service du secteur agricole ...
