Good support for ring rot scheme

THE PROPOSED safe haven scheme for potato ring rot has received strong backing from respondents to a recent FWi Poll.

Just over three quarters (76%) of people responding to the poll said they would sign up to the proposed ring rot-free safe haven scheme.

Of the remainder, 10% would not join it and 14% were unsure. Around 60 readers took part in the poll and the results from this and other surveys can be found at

Have your say in the current FWi Poll  which asks whether or not you think the results of the BRIGHT project, announced on Nov 29, will lead to the adoption of GM crops in the UK within the next 5 years.
