GM trial crop planted on Uk soil

Genetically modified wheat trial is happening again on UK soil. Rothamsted Research in Harpenden have planted a field of GM wheat surrounded by a 10 foot high fence in an attempt to stop activists from thrashing it. GM corporate researchers wrote to campaigners on Tuesday and also recorded a video plea, making a move to address the concern of campaigners and thus save their experiments. The plant biologists at Rothamsted Research, the government-funded agricultural centre in Hertfordshire, invited protesters to discuss their objections instead of uprooting the crops on 27 May.
