British government stops transgenic crop trial

(May 22, 2001 -- CropChoice news) -- The British government on Monday canceled trials of transgenic crops at a site near the the largest organic research center in Europe.

Opponents of the trials were concerned about the possibility of the transgenic varieties cross-pollinating with plants being grown at the Henry Doubleday Research Association organic experiment center.

Britain, which has yet to approve any transgenic crops, is testing them on 100 sites across the country to evaluate their safety.
