What could be done by genetic engineering in hours will instead be done in months or years.

What profitith it a seed company to produce in hours, grain that the peasants won't buy?

This process may take longer, and the resultant seed end up identical to the GM seed, but end-market acceptance is assured.

Yes, it is a form of pandering to Luddites, but in the end, we all benefit from the improved seed/grain.

Increased cost.

We all end up paying more for the product.

Ignorance cost money.
