    I suppose this would boost productivity, so how would this affect the CAP?

    Oh, yeah, last week's study.
    Russia banned gmo corn IN DAYS because of it.

    Didn't they just make a trade handshake with Argentina for corn?

    The study is a doppelganger of gm trials, only with a full lifespan instead of 90 days as required. It's pretty tight. (with my prayers to the mice)

    I think weird corn's price just plummeted.

    I hope Europe says NO to GMO and Monsantan.

    GM crops, a very controversial and immotive subject. Whilst I am all in favour of anything that helps to feed the ever increasing population of our planet, something deep down inside of me feels that messing about with mother nature is not the way to go about it.
