Spanish regional govt supports GMOs

The Spanish regional government of Catalonia is opposed to a proposal to ban the planting of genetically modified crops in the region. Agriculture Minister Joaquim Llena told the Catalan Parliament that applications for the commercialisation of GMOs should be considered on a case-by-case basis, the Spanish agricultural biotechnology association, the Antama, reports. Parliament discussed early this month the entry of a grower group’s proposal to end GM crop planting into the current parliamentary programme. Catalonia and neighbouring Aragon region plant the vast majority of Spain’s GM maize crops. Spain regularly has the largest GM crop area in Europe, covering over 79,000 ha in 2008 ( Agrow No 552, p 13).
