Prince Charles sparks debate over GM crops claims
The Prince accused large corporations of conducting experiments with nature, which had, he said “gone seriously wrong”. His comments were supported by Patrick Holden, a director of the Soil Association.
“If we go down this path I think we will put this country at risk. There could be a period of great difficulty in the next 10 or 20 years,” Mr Holden said. “No evidence has emerged from the first round of GM crops of any public benefits. They have actually increased pesticide use in the farms that have used them.”
If there’s one place on earth in which to visit, a place we’d really love to see the Prince’s organic farm in Highgrove.
Or better yet perhaps we can have him come speak here on the urban homestead… one can dream, yeah?
