Working group to consider EU GMO cultivation

Plans to set up an ad-hoc technical working party to discuss the cultivation of genetically modified crops in the EU have been cleared by Coreper, the committee of EU member state representatives, reports Brussels news service AgraFacts. Coreper is responsible for assessing European Commission proposals before they go forward for formal approval by EU Ministers. The working party will consider the Commission’s controversial plan to give member states the freedom to allow, restrict or ban the cultivation of EU-approved GM crops by adjusting the strength of co-existence measures. The proposals have been criticised by agricultural industry groups, while members of the European Parliament have raised concerns over trade issues ( Agrow No 597, p 12).
