India: Supreme Court declines to restrain GM crops’ field trials

The Supreme Court Monday declined to restrain the government from going ahead with the open field trials of the GM crops for the coming rabi season. The government earlier resisted any move to restrain open field trials of GM crops, while pointing to a court-appointed committee’s warning on possibly disastrous consequences of these crops. An apex court bench of Justice Swatanter Kumar and Justice S.J. Mukhopadhaya was told that a technical expert committee (TEC) appointed by it had pointed to the “possibility of contamination of non-GM food by the GM food”.
