It seems GM crops soon to get the green light in the UK.
Unfortunately there was one key thing that was missing from the trials that Acre’s decision rests upon – organic crops. The article mentions that
“Jules Pretty, the committee’s deputy chairman, said one of the most important results to come out of the trials was the extent to which modern agriculture of all types damaged the environment.”
Advocates for organic growing claim this as one of the benefits of going organic – by using organic processes, reducing pesticide use, and looking after the land the impact on the environment is lessened. Lets hope the next study includes organics as an option.
