GM warning from a US farmer<

NOW that you will have large tracts of GM crops growing all over the UK, I wish you luck and hope it turns out more successfully than it has here in
the USA.

I understand that Canada now has triple-resistant (Roundup, Liberty and Pursuit) volunteer canola growing quite widespread.

Monsanto is reccomending a 660ft (200m) buffer between GM and non-GM crops, but information indicates that pollen may drift up to 8km.

So best of luck – I hope the wind is blowing away from your farms.
