The limitations of the proposed reforms and impacts on producers

This presentation will review the actual situation (as opposed to the politically biased one) of pesticide residue contamination of organic foods in the UK and the EU. It will examine how the systems developed by certification bodies and proposed by Defra are problematic for organic cereal farmers and will undermine the organic regulation. The issue of GM contamination will also be briefly looked at.
