We the undersigned support the planned independent public research on blight resistant GM potatoes in Ireland proposed by Teagasc that will involve experimental field trials. We understand that this research is: - independent and involves no commercial companies - needed to provide information to Irish farmers - safe and poses no health concerns - is important to reduce the 1000's of litres of fungicide used on Irish land every year to combat blight - is important to provide options for new varieties of blight resistant potatoes to be produced in the face new forms of blight We call on the Green movement and activists to allow the research to be completed and data analysed before condemning the application of the technology.
