Green genetic engineering as it is used in agriculture and the food industry is all about creating new species of plants that are highly resistant to pests and pesticides or contain higher levels of nutrients than traditional plants. The idea is not new; in fact, farmers have been doing this for thousands of years, crossing and breeding plants to produce new and stronger species.The application of genetic engineering to plant breeding (so-called “green genetic engineering”) has been the subject of controversial debate for many years. Which benefits and risks would be linked to the cultivation of genetically modified crops in Switzerland? How should research and cultivation be regulated? Which ethical questions have to be considered? The Forum for Genetic Research promotes fact-based dialogue based on science.
