GM potatoes good? This is what The Soil Association  thinks GM | GMO GM Articles Research Links | Scoop.it
We campaign against genetically modified (GM) crops because they are making farming less fair, more risky and no more sustainable. GM crops have locked farmers further into depending on costly inputs from a handful of powerful chemical companies, and have been sold on false promises.

EU members protest proposed GM crop approval

EU members protest proposed GM crop approval | GMO GM Articles Research Links | Scoop.it

Ministers from 12 European Union member states have urged the European Commission to reconsider its proposal to approve a new strain of genetically modified maize.


The representatives, from countries including Austria, France and Italy, sent a letter dated 12 February to European Health Commissioner Tonio Borg asking him not to sanction the approval of Pioneer 1507. The move follows a debate at an EU General Affairs Council meeting on 11 February, at which it became clear that the Commission is almost certain to sanction cultivation of the crop. This is despite the opposition of 19 of the 28 member countries – and the European Parliament. The letter states that this outcome would not “yield approval under any other decision-making procedure”.
