…As opposition to genetically modified crops has spread across Europe and the world, leading chemical companies including BASF (BASFY) and DuPont (DD) have turned to mutagenesis—a technique that mimics the sun’s irradiation of plants—to create herbicide-resistant crops…

…The process, which faces almost no regulation, creates opportunities for companies to grab a bigger share of the $34 billion global commercial seed market. But some scientists say mutant crops are more likely to pose health risks than genetically modified ones….

…Mutagenesis isn’t new: Breeders have relied on it for decades to produce thousands of varieties of lettuce, oats, rice, and other crops. BASF today licenses its technologies to 40 of the world’s biggest seed companies, including DuPont and Switzerland’s Syngenta (SYENF), which in turn sell high volumes of mutant breeds, ranging from wheat to sunflowers, in markets that reject genetically engineered seeds…

…All breeding techniques can create plants with increased levels of naturally occurring toxins or with proteins known to cause allergic reactions. Reports from the National Academy of Sciences, representing the consensus of experts in the field, say the risk of creating unintended health effects is greater from mutagenesis than any other technique, including genetic modification…

…Industry experts say breeding and biotechnology are starting to converge. Over the past five years, breeders have increasingly used molecular markers and sequenced genomes of corn and other crops to improve crossbreeding, making conventional breeding more like genetic engineering. “There is not a black line between biotechnology and nonbiotechnology,” says Paul Schickler, president of DuPont’s Pioneer seed unit. “It’s a continuum.”…
