The farm-scale evaluations of GM crops; the science behind the headlines

Farm Scale Evaluations The farm scale evaluations of GM crops are the largest study of farmland wildlife ever. In more than 4000 field visits scientists counted over 700,000 plants and 1.5 million bugs. The trials were designed to look at the effects of weed management in GM crops compared to that in conventional crops but they can tell us much more than that. Come and talk to the scientists and discuss how this wealth of facts can help us to make countryside management friendlier to wildlife.

Monday 6 September, 7.30-10pm

Venue: St. George's Hall, Exeter
