Italian ministers of Agriculture, Public Health and Environment have finally signed a joint decree banning the cultivation of the genetically modified maize MON810. This is the result of a broad rejection to GM crops among public opinion and institutions all around the country. Italy is the eighth European country to approve a MON810 ban.
Today the Italian Health minister required that the authorization of the cultivation of GM maize (technical name Mon810) should be immediately suspended in Italy and all other European countries. This is a reaction to a scientific report by the Italian Agricultural Research Council (CRA) about the insecticide producing GM maize. This announcement moves Italy closer to the bans of the GM maize from seven other European countries (Austria, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Luxembourg and Poland), and it is the result of the Italian public rejection which unites farmers , consumers, environmentalist from all the country.
Rada Ministrów przyjęła dziś – 2 stycznia 2013 r. dwa ważne rozporządzenia o zakazie stosowania materiału siewnego odmian modyfikowanych genetycznie (GMO), kukurydzy MON 810 i ziemniaka Amflora.
