EFSA dismisses Greek MON810 ban

The evidence provided by Greece on its latest ban on Monsanto’s EU-approved genetically modified insect-resistant MON810 maize is not sufficient to justify its action, says the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA). The Authority was asked by the Commission to assess a Greek notification submitted in November 2011. The country has imposed a succession of two-year bans on import, planting and sale of the GM line since 2005, and has ignored all EU rulings to overturn them ( Agrow No 571, p 15).
