Rice at Risk: Will there be a choice with GE Rice?

Publication - 1 October, 2004
Proponents of genetic engineering argue that "co-existence" of genetically engineered (GE, sometimes called genetic modified, GM or transgenic) and non-GE rice is possible.They argue that countries, and even neighbouring farmers, will be able to produce and keep separate GE rice, non-GE (conventional), and organic rice for export and/or domestic consumption. However, there is strong evidence that co-existence for rice is not possible - GE contamination will occur.
