Germany bans Mon810

Germany bans Monsanto’s GM maize

Germany is to ban cultivation and sale of maize with genetically modified organisms (GMOs), German Agriculture Minister Ilse Aigner said on Tuesday. The ban affects MON 810 maize which may no longer be sown for this summer’s harvest, Aigner told a news conference. Several other European Union countries including France have banned GMO maize cultivation in the face of EU approvals. But the bans are controversial and face action from the EU Commission to get them lifted.
