Likewise, it documents how countries, mostly in the developing world, have addressed communication challenges in the research and development process, and in some cases, actual commercialization of biotech crops. From the experiences of these countries emerge lessons learned which contribute to a better appreciation and understanding of the crucial role of science communication in the laboratory to farmers’ field continuum.
