French seed companies seek GMO trials

Seed companies in France have sought permission to resume testing of genetically modified maize lines, reports French newswire The move follows the recent conviction of 53 GMO mowers by a court of appeal in Versailles for having destroyed Monsanto’s trials on GM maize lines in 2007 at Poinville in the Eure-et-Loir region ( Agrow No 584, p 10). The French association for seeds and seedlings, the GNIS, has called upon the government to reaffirm its commitment to the law by allowing the resumption of field trials in the shortest possible time. It points to the government’s commitment that research on biotechnology be recognised as a national priority.
