GENETICALLY ENGINEERED

"FRANKENGRASS"

SPREADS INTO THE WILD
________________________________

An experimental variety of genetically engineered bentgrass has escaped from its test plot in Oregon and has been found growing in the wild as far as three miles away, according to scientists from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. The biotech plant, designed for golf courses, has not been approved by the US Department of Agriculture, but has already been found dispersing among native grasses in six different locations.

Scientists say they don't know how it will behave in the wild but admit it may have a strong advantage over native grasses, and could therefore irreversibly damage the ecosystem as it spreads.

INDIA ORGANIC EXHIBITION IN BANGALORE
----------------------------------------------------------

The International Competence Centre for Organic Agriculture (ICCOA) is organizing "India Organic", the Indian exhibition for organic products in Bangalore, India, for the second time from 9-12 November 2006. The exhibition is intended for trade exhibitors and visitors. India Organic got off to a convincing start at its première in November 2005, when 180 exhibitors from all over India and the world attracted 30,000 visitors to the exhibition halls. A 3-day congress programme was attended by 500 visitors. India Organic 2006 will beat these figures.

India with slightly more than a billion people is one of the world's fastest growing economies and one of the three leading producers of milk, fruit and vegetables, poultry, rice, wheat, tea, herbs and spices. The middle class of about 150 million people is becoming increasingly interested in
environmental and food matters.
