EU GMO cultivation rules in force in April

New EU rules allowing member states to opt out of cultivating approved genetically modified crops will come into force on April 2nd, following their publication in the EU Official Journal in March. EU Directive 2015/412 means that countries will no longer have to abide by EU approvals for cultivation, but can impose national restrictions or bans on grounds such as policy objectives, co-existence problems, and socio-economic impacts. It marks the end of more than four years of difficult negotiations on the issue.
