Sir: Further to your report on the Monsanto court case (18 February), could an "expert" please explain why a sanitary cordon of only six metres around a field of genetically modified oilseed rape is considered officially sufficient to avoid pollen contamination. The foraging range of the honey bee is up to three miles and the bee is the normal means of pollination in oilseed rape.
