Polish Parliament debates restrictive GMO law

Poland’s Parliament is debating a draft law on agricultural biotechnology, which is likely to impose restrictive obligations on the cultivation of genetically modified crops, according to the USDA’s Foreign Agricultural Service (FAS). The proposed legislation envisages establishing measures such as isolation zones between GM maize and conventional and organic crops of 500 m and 1,000 m respectively. The FAS report quotes the Polish association of cereal producers as labelling the law “excessively restrictive”, saying that the isolation distance in other EU countries where GM crops are being cultivated ranges from 12 mto 70m for conventional crops, and only in the case of the Czech Republic reaches up to 200 m for organic maize.
