Poland seeks ban on GM-corn

WARSAW, Poland, March 23, 2005: Poland has decided to seek permission for a two year ban on the import and planting of 17 varieties of genetically modified (GMO) maize seed made by Monsanto. Poland must first submit and receive petition from the European Commission to ban parent seed MON 810, a gm-variety recently approved for cultivation by the European Union. Polish officials hope to have an answer to their request within the next two months.

Poland is the second central European nation seeking the right to ban, Hungary has already successfully argued their request. Read the full story at: http://www.planetark.com/dailynewsstory.cfm/newsid/30052/story
