Ukraine to grow GMO feed crops - AllAboutFeed (2013) | The Risks of Modern Food Culture | Scoop.it

Ukraine’s Ministry of Agrarian Policy is to start a pilot project producing forage crops using genetic engineering, according to Mykola Prysyazhnyuk, Minister of Agricultural Policy and Food... However, in the near future Ukraine will only grow and use GMO feed in test mode in order to first evaluate the impact it could have on the environment and livestock.

I would like to understand how the consumer market will respond to it," said Prysiazhnyuk.
