Summary

The increasing use of genetically modified plants (GMP) has opened up for a discussion about the problems related to the co-existence of GM and non-GM crops and especially the consequences for organic farming. One of the objectives of DARCOF project TOPRO (Tool for protection against contamination by GMO) has been to develop specific modelling tools, which can be used for the prediction of dispersal of GM pollen under different conditions and for investigating measures to limit the GM dispersal to organic fields.
