Defra has granted consent to Rothamsted Research to conduct a research trial on GM wheat in 2012 and 2013. The research is on wheat that has been genetically modified to resist aphids, which are a pest in wheat crops.

The Rothamsted Research application has been evaluated by the independent expert group the Advisory Committee of Releases to the Environment (ACRE). It is satisfied that the proposed trial will not result in any adverse effect on human health or the environment.

In line with ACRE’s advice, precautionary conditions have been attached to the statutory consent for the trial. These aim to ensure that no GM material from the trial will enter the food and feed chain.
