Spanish region goes GMO-free:

Spain's autonomous Basque government has declared the region free of genetically modified crops. It approved a joint proposal by the Ministries of Health, the Environment and Agriculture earlier this year. The deal includes: establishing measures to "impede" production of GM crops for use as food or feed; developing specific co-existence rules with the aim of demanding maximum protection for conventional and organic farming; setting up systems of identification, control and traceability for all agricultural produce; supporting biotechnology research; and taking part in action inside the European GMO-free regions' network. Twenty EU regions signed a charter in 2005 to become GMO-free (Agrow No 466, p 13). Signatories aimed to work within EU legal frameworks.
