ABSTRACT
The article reports on the concern of organic farmers to widespread genetic modification (GM) contamination as a result of the proposals of the British government for co-existence arrangements between genetically modified and conventional crops. Some producers who supported GM are also in favor of the proposals. Soil Association policy director Peter Melchett claims that the plans would deny consumers their right to select non-GM food.
