EU suggests criteria for banning GM crop cultivation

Grounds such as ethical concerns and the need to maintain public order could be invoked to restrict or ban the cultivation of EU-approved genetically modified crops, suggests the European Commission. It has drawn up a list of possible reasons for banning GM crops, in response to pressure from EU member states ( Agrow No 607, p 8). The working document has arisen from ongoing discussions on the Commission’s proposals to give member states the freedom to decide whether to cultivate GM crops, rather than have to accept EU-level approvals.
