Serbia passes law prohibiting GMOs

The Serbian Parliament has adopted a new law on genetically modified organisms that prohibits all commercial growing of or trade involving GMOs, reports the USDA’s Foreign Agricultural Service. The law regulates basic conditions for the use of GMOs in closed systems such as laboratories or greenhouses and in field trials. Serbian imports of soybean meal for cattle feed are no longer possible. The previous law on GMOs that was adopted in 2001 was more liberal in the area of trade and allowed the import of GM soybean meal ( Agrow No 481, p 11). The report says that imports were allowed due to limited production within the country. But imports have more than halved over the last couple of years due to reduced cattle production and increased domestic soybean meal production. Serbia was mainly importing soybean meal from Brazil and Argentina.
