Published: 10th september 2014
GMO stands for genetically manipulated organisms (with a negative connotation) or genetically modified organisms (neutral term). Genetic modification involves manually and intentionally altering the genes of an organism by humans and is part of genetic engineering.

All by Tropicalseeds B.V. traded seeds in our current range have been developed using traditional cultivating methods, without using genetic modification techniques that lead to genetically modified organisms (GMOs) as defined in Directive 2001/18 of the European Parliament and of the Council of the European communities, regarding to the deliberate release of GMOs into the environment.

A large part of the grown and harvested seeds is traded under cultivated conditions, sometimes in semi natural areas. These are a combination of wooded areas which are managed on a long term nature friendly way.
