Doubt cast on value of British GM crop tests
A three-year British research programme due to report this autumn on whether growing genetically modified (GM) crops harms wildlife will "fail to provide any conclusive evidence", green group Friends of the Earth said this week. The NGO said the scientific work suffered from a variety of limitations. For this it blamed not the researchers but the government, which it claimed "was not interested in properly investigating the long-term impacts of GM crops". See press release and report.
