EU Ministers support GMO bans

EU Environment Ministers have rejected a bid by the European Commission to force Hungary and Austria to lift their bans on EU-approved genetically modified maize lines. The Commission had submitted proposals concerning Hungary's ban on Monsanto's insect-resistant MON810 maize and Austria's ban on MON810 and Bayer CropScience's glufosinate-tolerant T25 maize ( Agrow No 561, p 8 and No 562, p 10). The Ministers have previously blocked similar Commission action against the bans over the last two years. The European biotechnology industry association, EuropaBio, responded to the decision with "profound disappointment".
