Abstract: In a Correspondence in the August issue, Graff and colleagues (2009) sought to answer the question of why quality-improving innovations from agbiotech have not been more readily forthcoming, and through a survey carried out in 2004 they identified 49 quality innovations expected to be commercialized by 2015 (21 of those between 2010 and 2015). Clear-sighted, they cautioned that attribution during regulatory review and commercialization will probably mean only a fraction of these 49 reaches the market. In a similar but more recent exercise we compiled a global pipeline of new GM crops, in which a total of 91 new GM crops are expected to be commercialized between 2009 and 2015 ¿ of which only 18 represent quality innovations.
