EU wins WTO extension on GMOs

The EU has won a further extension to the deadline for complying with a WTO ruling to lift national bans on genetically modified crops. The deadline was originally extended from November 21st 2007 to January 11th 2008 (Agrow No 533, p 9). The European Commission has now negotiated a one-month extension to February 11th with Canada and a five-month extension to June 11th with Argentina. However, negotiations are continuing with the third complainant, the US, which is threatening to impose trade sanctions unless there is "meaningful progress" on EU GM crop approvals.
