EFSA dismisses Austrian GM rapeseed ban again

Austria’s request to prolong its ban on a genetically modified oilseed rape line is not supported by adequate scientific evidence, says the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA). This is the third time that the EFSA has dismissed an Austrian submission relating to Monsanto’s glyphosate-tolerant GT73 line, after previous cases in 2009 and 2012 ( Agrow No 649, p 13). However, the European Commission has had no success in overturning Austria’s bans.
