Defra: multi agency response to GM wheat trial 21/R08/01

GM Freeze, the Organic Research Centre and twenty six other organisations came together to ask Defra not to allow Rothamsted Research to plant an open field trial of genetically modified wheat.

GM developers at Rothamsted Research have applied for permission to plant  highly experimental gene edited wheat at their farm near St Albans. Please let Defra know by 4 July 2021 that you do not want this trial to go ahead. Action: Say NO to new GM wheat trial
