Organic Farming and Genetic Engineering

How to Keep Organic Farming GMO-free (Dossier N° 3)

Worldwide, organic farming has resolved not to use genetically modified organisms (GMOs). But let’s be frank: Do you know the full range of issues that led to this decision? This dossier sets forth the arguments and explains the background. With more and more genetically modified crops being cultivated all around the world, the risk of organic products being unintentionally contaminated by GMOs is growing. The dossier highlights the critical points from cultivation through to the transportation and processing of organic products, and identifies the measures being taken to keep organic food production GM-free. This richly illustrated brochure will be valuable to all producers, processors, wholesalers and retailers, and to consumers wishing to gain an up-to-date overview of the state of debate.
