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.

– and why – it is used.
