Re: That's pretty much a given (DA Morgan)

This programme suggested they were back to using old fashioned insecticides that had been considered too toxic, GM crops meant they could use milder ones. When all the weeds weren't being killed they started with 10% of the old insecticides and now the suggestion is that the spray in containing nearly 90% of the old insecticides. Suggesting no great gain in using GM. (Sorry can't remember the name of the insecticide, but it is banned in Europe I think).
