Indian Supreme Court seeks response on GMO trials

The Indian Supreme Court has sought a response from the government on the steps taken to regulate open field trials of genetically modified crops, reports Indian newspaper The Financial Express. The Court has also sought response within four weeks on the likelihood of holding trials under greenhouse conditions. It was acting on a petition filed by an anti-GMO activist, who contended that open field trials have the tendency to contaminate native plant varieties. GM crops have recently been a subject of much controversy in India, surrounding the imminent clearance of GM insect-resistant aubergines for commercial cultivation (see this issue).
