NFU fires GM warning shot over future trade deals

The UK should tread carefully on introducing commercial GM crops at the risk of alienating important markets, a farm leader has said.

NFU vice-president Guy Smith said Brexit had brought the GM issue back into the spotlight.

“I am very conscious that everything I grow on my farm has to have a market – I have to grow what consumers want to eat.”
