Genetic use restriction technologies (GURTs), also known as terminator technologies, were developed with the aim to restrict the access to genetic materials and their phenotypic traits (VAN ACKER et al., 2007).
Environmental concerns about the cross-pollination of GM crops have led to renewed interest in using GURTS so that any resulting seed would be sterile, but at present the technology is not used or ready for use.
One particular type of GM-technology which has generated enormous controversy is Genetic Use Restriction Technologies (GURTs).
