CropGen Mission

A consumer and media information initiative, CropGen's mission is to make the case for GM crops and foods by helping to achieve a greater measure of realism and better balance in the UK's public discussions on agriculture and food.

CropGen recognises that crop biotechnology offers many actual and potential benefits – benefits which are often overlooked or deliberately obscured in public debates.

CropGen accordingly participates in radio and TV interviews and presentations, briefs journalists, writes articles and letters, and offers speakers for private and public debates and meetings.

CropGen's views are entirely our own. None of the associates or experts is employed by or receives research funding either from the biotechnology industry or from any organisation campaigning against the use of biotechnology in agriculture and the food industry. Most CropGen contributors offer their services in the public interest.

Vistors to this website might be interested in seeing CropGen’s video contribution to what GM means, how it developed, and how – and why – it is used.
