USDA Under Secretary for Marketing and Regulatory Programs Greg Ibach spoke to attendees at the American Seed Trade Association (ASTA) CSS 2018 and Seed Expo during a Plant Breeding Innovation session, toured the trade show, and met with media on Thursday in Chicago.

Ibach discussed the importance of innovation in plant breeding, as well as coming regulations for GMO labeling, and the current global trade situation. He said the GMO labeling rules should be released in the very near future. “We’re hoping we have that done before the end of the year because that’s an important timeline,” he said.
