h) The seeds which are supplied with this delivery are conventional varieties bred from parent plants which have not been genetically modified.

Production may take place in areas where the growing of genetically modified varieties is authorised. It is therefore not possible to prevent the occurrence of adventitious GMO and to guarantee that the seed lots comprising this delivery are free from all traces of GMO. Although appropriate samples of seed have been tested and/or appropriate due diligence procedures applied in order to comply with applicable seed legislation and for adventitious GMO presence, Elsoms Seeds gives no guarantee that the seed is GMO free and can accept no liability for any damage whatsoever arising from the possible occurrence of adventitious traces of GMO.
