EU takes Poland to court over GMOs

The European Commission has decided to take Poland to the European Court of Justice for not complying with EU rules on monitoring the cultivation of genetically modified crops. Under the EU GMO registration Directive (2001/18), member states must maintain a register of the locations of cultivated GM crops and make this information available to the public. Poland has so far failed to include these requirements in its national legislation, despite “repeated calls” from the Commission. Poland banned the cultivation of two EU-approved GM crops, Monsanto’s YieldGard Corn Borer (MON810) maize and BASF’s Amflora potatoes, in January, and has imposed restrictions on cultivating GM crops since 2006 (Agrow No 655, p 10).
