Spanish maize grower group lauds authorities

The Spanish maize growers’ association, the APGME, has thanked and congratulated the Spanish authorities for their support for the use of genetically modified crops. The association’s vice-president, Carlos Ferrer, has lauded Minister of the Environment and Agriculture Josep Puxeu and the head of agriculture at the regional government of Aragon, Gonzalo Arguile, for their “brave and reasoned” position. They have followed advice from scientific reports, while ignoring “contradictory demagogues”, he explains. Mr Ferrer has also called for the use of GMOs in the EU to produce biofuels, in order that it meet its commitments on “clean energy use”. Production of the necessary crops is otherwise uneconomical, he says. Spain accounted for most of the EU’s GM maize growing area last year ( Agrow No 554, p 11).
