GM wheat trial promises fiery TV debate

Campaigners are set to lock horns with the scientists behind the GM wheat trial at Rothamsted Research in a live studio television debate. Conventional wheat grower Peter Lundgren is expected to join other GM sceptics for the debate, hosted by BBC’s Newsnight on Thursday, 17 May. The programme will feature footage of Lincolnshire grower Mr Lundgren questioning the value of Rothamsted’s £1.28m GM crop trial, which is designed to repel aphids, a major crop pest in wheat. In footage recorded for the programme, Mr Lundgren points out that every major British supermarket currently rejects GM food ingredients.
