  • In October 2003 the government announced the long-awaited results of its 
    controversial farm scale investigations into whether GM crops were 
    harmless or harmful for the environment. These were the trials that outraged 
    environmentalists, who are strongly opposed to any GM crops. Crops 
    were flattened, farmers taking part in the trials were threatened. The 
    government set up consultation groups around the country to give ordinary 
    people a chance to learn about and discuss the issues.
