US GMO (genetically modified organism) stewardship scheme

The USDA is to introduce a voluntary stewardship scheme for all organisations involved in testing genetically modified organisms. It will be aimed at universities and businesses and is intended to complement the Biotechnology Industry Organization's "Excellence Through Stewardship" scheme (Agrow No 525, p 14).
