ADM Seeks Crop Split




NEW YORK -- Agribusiness giant Archer Daniels Midland Co. is warning its grain suppliers to begin segregating genetically modified crops from conventional crops, the Wall Street Journal reported in Thursday's online edition.


The paper said ADM is faxing statements on crop segregation to grain elevators throughout the Midwest in what the Journal called a sign that concern in Europe and Asia about genetically modified crops is affecting U.S. exporters.


The company told the paper that it "remains supportive of the science and safety" of genetically engineered crops, but said it wants to be able to supply a growing number of overseas customers who are wary of genetically modified crops.
