EU Executive Commission approves GM corn cultivation

 

 

Despite the objections of environmental groups which consider it dangerous, the EU's Executive Commission is backing plans to cultivate a genetically modified (GM) corn.

 

The approval now pushes for the approval of Corn 1507 to the EU's 28 member nations for consideration and could lead to a decision on the issue as soon as next month. EU member states have sharply diverging views on the cultivation of Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs).

 

The EU has strict guidelines on authorising and informing consumers about foods containing GMOs which has caused problems for producers of GM seeds such as US-based Monsanto Co., which are used to laxer rules around the world.

 

The US company Pioneer applied to cultivate Corn 1507 in 2001.
