Independent via corante:
Bayer Cropscience has given up attempts to grow commercial GM maize in Britain.

The decision, blamed by the company on government restrictions, means no GM crop will be grown commercially in the UK in 2005 and raises questions about the future of GM in this country.

The German biotechnology company will announce today that its maize variety Chardon LL, which was to be developed as cattle feed, had been left 'economically non-viable' because of conditions set by the Environment Secretary Margaret Beckett when she gave limited approval to the growing of the crop this month.
