Little support for latest EU GMO compromise

EU member states have shown little enthusiasm for a suggestion that they could reach deals with companies to exclude their territories when commercialising genetically modified crops. The proposal was presented by the Danish EU Presidency as a compromise on the issue of allowing nationals bans on the cultivation of GM crops, even when they have been approved at EU level ( Agrow No 633, p 9). The Danish idea would see countries try to reach agreements with companies applying for EU cultivation approval. If successful, the company would exclude that country from its application. If not, the approval procedure would continue as normal, and the member state would have to provide evidence to justify its ban at a later date.
