Abstract

In many countries of the world regional actors and their networks seem to be concerned about genetically engineered plants, food, feed and seed. Especially regional actors involved in organic and natural food and farming business seem to lead the way in wanting to know more about the source of their food, what it contains and how it is produced. Sustainable producing Farmers want to protect their plants and produce from the influence of pollen drift from GM plants. Thus the Introduction of GM plants requires complex innovations in regularizing ecological, social and economic relationships and it induces various institutional changes even on local level. This paper gives an inside over institutional changes which occurred in selected study regions of North America and Germany with respect to the introduction of GM plants
