Turkish Biosafety Law hurting economy

The implementation of Turkey’s Biosafety Law is causing “substantial” negative impacts for the country’s feed and food, and livestock production sectors, a UK-based PG Economics report has found. Lead report author Graham Brookes says there is “clear evidence of major economic damage and market disruption” from the manner of the Law’s implementation.

The Biosafety Law was passed last year and regulations on the commercial use of GMOs came into force in September ( Agrow No 589, p 16).
