EU GMO Update

The Europeans quarrel with plants bred with molecular plant breeding methods continue. French farmers are pushing for it, but they lost the court case to overturn the ban on genetically modified corn. I previously wrote about the scientific fraud that led to the ban.

While French farmers are trying to get access to biotechnology seed, Austrian activists are trying to pressure the U.S. government to back off penalty tariffs U.S. is considering. The U.S. is considering imposing penalty tariffs because the members of the EU still is not complying with the WTO ruling that stated the import ban on GMO’s is a trade barrier without valid scientific and public health concerns.
