AN ORGANIC farmer, backed by environmentalists, launches a legal action today to challenge the government over trials of genetically-engineered crops.

Lawyers are starting judicial review proceedings over concerns that a research institute is carrying out genetic trials next to the organic farm of Guy Watson in Devon.

Mr Watson fears weedkiller-resistant genetically-engineered maize could contaminate his organic crops.
