The end of GM-crop trials in the UK?

Bayer, the last remaining company conducting trials of GM crops in the UK has decided to end its research. The decision is a reaction to the decision by the Department for the Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA) that the location of all trials must be made public. That pretty much guarantees that the crops will be attacked by protestors.

One industry source is quoted as saying that this is a GM moratorium 'by the back door'.
