Genetic Modification

Scottish Government Policy on Genetically Modified (GM) Crops

The Scottish Government is opposed to the cultivation of GM crops.

The cultivation of GM crops could damage Scotland's rich environment and would threaten our reputation for producing high quality and natural foods. It would damage Scotland's image as a land of food and drink.
