Spanish GM maize area dips

Almost a quarter of the Spanish maize area was planted with Monsanto’s genetically modified insect-resistant MON810 maize in the 2010 season. The proportion (23.2%) was the largest-ever in Spain, and came despite a fall in the GM maize area by over 3,100 ha to 76,575 ha, Spanish biotechnology association, the Antama, reports. The overall area for the crop was down. The Spanish GM maize area jumped from around 50,000 ha in 2006 to over 75,000 ha in 2007 ( Agrow No 578, p 13), since when it has largely plateaued. Spain remains the major adopter of GM maize in the EU. The Ministry calculated the area on sales of Spanish-registered seed until 2008, and has included seed registered in other EU member states for 2009 and 2010.
