yet one more way the EU is trying to control us all.  At the moment there are ways round the problem ,as mentioned in the article, ie: seed swap, exchange etc. , that is till the EU change the law to stop the loopholes. The best thing we can do is get as many old varieties of veg or whatever, and grow as many, as we can . Keep a trace on all the names , and swap surplus seed , but it must be gm free stuff as well as F1 types , as F1 don't breed true to type. As far as gm goes , who wants tomatoes with fish genes in them ?
