More calls for national rights on GMOs in EU

Several EU member states have repeated their calls for the right to block the cultivation of genetically modified crops, even if they have been approved at EU level. The Netherlands once again led the calls when it presented the conclusions of a GMO conference to EU Agriculture and Environment Ministers at their meetings in December. The country first called for legislative changes last year ( Agrow No 563, p 9), and is strongly supported by member states such as Austria and Hungary, which have already banned some EU-approved GM crops ( Agrow passim). Nevertheless, opinions on if, and how, GMO rules should be changed remain widely divided across the EU.
