Compensation:

Payment for damages caused by admixing of GMOs

Producers of organic and certified GM-free products may sell their ware for a premium. Fearing economic losses if their products become mixed with GMOs, farmers have called for a compensation scheme covering such cases. The EU member states have come up with varying solutions. Some consider their existing laws sufficient to handle losses due to GMO contamination, others have passed laws detailing this issue. Liability funds are another common solution.
