This paper was prepared as part of a series of agricultural ethics papers in the “editor’s choice” section of a plant physiology journal. Rather than being written as a conventional research article, it has been prepared as a kind of an editorial, the purpose of which is to sensitize those who work in agriculture and agricultural research to the need to communicate clearly about the fact that “biotechnology” is a highly diverse category.
