World Food Prize takes on biotech, global warming

FILE - This combination of undated file photos provided by The World Food Prize Foundation shows, from left: Robert T. Fraley and Mary-Dell Chilton of the United States, and Marc Van Montagu of Belgium who were named Wednesday, June 19, 2013, as winners of the 2013 World Food Prize during a ceremony in Washington. The World Food Prize Foundation is confronting head-on opposition to the widespread use of biotechnology and the corporations that create and promote genetically modified crops by awarding this year’s prize to three biotech pioneers. Two recipients hold prominent positions at biotechnology firms _ Mary-Dell Chilton, founder and researcher at Syngenta Biotechnology and Robert Fraley, chief technology officer at Monsanto. The third award recipient is Marc Van Montagu, founder and chairman of the Institute of Plant Biotechnology Outreach at Ghent University in Belgium. They receive their award Thursday in a ceremony at the Iowa Capitol. (AP Photo/The World Food Prize Foundation, File)
