Hope they have some brilliant idea to get around these problems....
: Inorganic copper products, for fruit, vegetable, potato and hop production and viticulture (maximum legally permitted application of 4 kg of pure copper per hectare and year)...
nicotine, OK they call it tobacco extract...

But some plants are now coming and your statement that golden rice will "slightly increase the amount of nutrients in a crop" is really a scandal! This plant is going to save millions of lives, whether you like it or not. This is why Greenpeace is so upset about it because they now run out of arguments.
Regulation has become extremely exaggerated for GMOs. Even if classic breeding that has been done for thousands of years, it can have unexpected outcomes (I know of one case where a new cucumber plant that looked normal accumulated toxins like crazy) and nobody is asking for stronger regulation.
get educated here:
Many people don't know but organic farming does use dangerous products such as: copper (dangerous heavy metal) and nicotine (cancerogenous insecticide)
It is only thanks to the advancement of science and technology that we are not starving anymore. GMOs are just the next logical step in that development.
There is also no documentation that organic products are healthier in any way. You can find cancerogenic compounds in many organic products (e.g. aflatoxins) and nobody cares about that because it is "organic".
You should get out of your romantic view of nature, nature is dangerous!
What is interesting is that only people who do not understand anything about biology, plant breeding and GMOs are against GMOs.
2.8% unemployment rate! Highest salaries in the world. Health insurance, pension it is all there! US people would call it a communistic country though
And it is a nice and very safe place to live (except if your name is Polanski...).
