No change needed in GMO co-existence for EU honey

Existing guidance on the co-existence of genetically modified maize with conventional and organic crops in the EU does not need changing to allow for honey production, concludes the European Coexistence Bureau (ECoB). The Bureau’s latest analysis has found that no adjustments are necessary to ensure that the adventitious presence of GM maize pollen in honey is “far below” legal labelling thresholds. It has issued a new best practice document on the co-existence of GM maize and honey production, which complements its original guidelines on maize co-existence issued in 2010 (Agrow No 601, p 10).
