Argentine court orders suspension to Monsanto plant

An Argentine municipal court has ordered a halt to Monsanto's plans to build a maize seed plant in the Cordoba region's Malvinas Argentinas, national media report. The Cordoba labour chamber court ruled that the regional government order approving the plant's construction be stayed until it had carried out an environmental impact assessment, and held a public hearing on the issue. The company reportedly says that it is carrying out its own impact assessment following the regional government's approval condition that it issue one before the plant comes into operation. Activists had blockaded the plant for months prior to the ruling, leading the company to hold up construction over safety fears for its workers. Monsanto planned to complete construction of the facility early this year (Agrow No 674, p 2).
