Breeder annoyed GM given credit for yield hikes

Brian Rossnagel is tired of proponents of genetically modified crops attributing all the yield increases in corn, soybeans and canola to GM
The plant breeder interviewed in the article below isn't the only one to express annoyance at GM wrongly being credited with yield increases in staple crops.

Earlier this year, a wheat breeder complained that GM is oversold as a plant development method.

The article below contains the misconception that GM is expensive because of regulatory costs. But in fact regulatory costs only amount to 25% of the cost of bringing a GMO trait to market – the rest is basic R&D cost.
