Spain GM maize farmers want stacks
Nine out of ten Spanish farmers growing genetically modified maize want the availability of herbicide-tolerant and insect-resistant maize, according to a study by the market research company, Markin. The Spanish biotechnology association Fundacion Antama commissioned the research, which also found that 95% of those who grew Monsanto’s GM insect-resistant MON810 maize last year would do so again this year. The rest had not yet decided, the association says. Among those questioned and who planted Bt maize, some 81% felt “very satisfied” with the crops, and another 17% “quite satisfied”, while none encountered problems selling their produce.
