Controversies[edit]

It seems strange that there is no mention of Rothamsted Research's role in testing genetically modified wheat, and the protests that have greeted that, as described by The Guardian. As it stands, the article is little more than a public relations flyer for the institute, and hardly qualifies as following the Wikipedia policy of a neutral point of view.

I've now added a section on the protest. Rothamsted was not involved in the first round of GM trials and I'm not aware of any other controversies.--Salix (talk): 08:09, 28 May 2012 (UTC)
Thanks for that incredibly quick response. Skinsmoke (talk) 01:52, 29 May 2012 (UTC)
