Milford Grain says transgenic wheat is a bad idea

(Friday, Feb. 21, 2003 -- CropChoice news) -- Clive Ratcliff of Milford Grain in Liverpool wrote the following in response to yesterday's CropChoice story, "Farmers' funds promoting genetically engineered wheat?", and developments in the North Dakota and Montana legislatures on the issue of transgenic wheat.

"The first important issue is for the MGE (Minneapolis Grain Exchange) to refuse GMO deliveries against its contracts. I can't stress how important it is to stop the commercialization of GMO wheat - the supply system cannot guarantee to segregate, as has already been well shown with StarLink corn."
