Spanish Ag Minister urges EU GMO adoption

The Spanish Minister of Agriculture, Miguel Arias Cañete, has called on the EU to embrace adoption of genetically modified crops. He told a Madrid audience this month that the continent “cannot turn its back on agricultural biotechnology” when agriculture is faced with mounting production challenges. He cited concerns such as scarce water and land, and global competitors that have adopted the technology “without problems”. Spain has long been the dominant adopter of GM crops in the EU, planting some 97,000 ha of Monsanto’s GM insect-resistant YieldGard Corn Borer (MON810) maize last year ( Agrow No 626, p 11).
