UK: Rothamsted looks to extend GM wheat trials

The following is an excerpt.

The centre in Harpenden, which was attacked by anti-GM protesters for its aphid resistant wheat trials last year, has submitted an application to extend its current field trial to include additional autumn-sown cadenza wheat.

Scientists believe it would be ‘advantageous’ to gain further data from their experiment, in wheat planted at a different time of year and under different weather conditions with different aphid populations.

Because the UK’s temperate climate permits wheat plant growth during the winter, Cadenza wheat can be sown in either the autumn or the spring and both sowings are harvested in August/September.
