Spring sowing in the UK: GM corn

In spring they can start planting transgenic crops in the Great Viritania. This has been affirmed by the local Environmental Advisory Council through a report.

The report has been interpreted very differently by the defenders and detractors of genetically modified crops. And it is that transgenic maize is not as harmful to biodiversity as normal. However, it has been determined that two herbicides have been used for research, and it seems that atracin used in traditional farming is more harmful than the herbicide used with transgenic maize.

According to the same study, the investigated transgenic herds and trailers are no better than conventional ones, at least in the conditions in which the study has been conducted.

Experts agree on the need to continue investigating to determine the damages and benefits derived from the use of transgenic crops. Especially for the prohibition of antracina in 2005 by the European Union.
