NZ Farmers Oppose Ban on GM Foods

Oddly enough, they'd like to decide for themselves what crops they'll plant


Federated Farmers say farmers should have the right to decide if they want to use genetically modified technology.

The group wants Hawkes Bay to stop its charge towards becoming a GM-free food-producing region.

Federate Farmers said it should be left to the Government to deal with the issue on a national scale.

Vice-president William Rolleston said putting a blanket ban on GM organisms would be unfair to farmers, who should have the right to decide for themselves.
