EU seed group demands GMO thresholds

The European Seed Association (ESA) has called on the European Commission to "urgently" issue legislative proposals on setting thresholds for genetically modified material in conventional seed. The ESA expressed its "frustration" in March over the Commission's failure to act on the issue despite the ESA and others highlighting the need for thresholds for the last ten years.
