France has temporarily banned the growing ofMonsanto Co.'s genetically modified corn MON810 ahead of guidance by European regulators on the crop's safety and after the European Commission told France it doesn't plan any urgent measures ahead of the opinion, according to France's agriculture and environment ministries.
In February, France asked the EUto suspend approval for MON810, citing scientific studies that show growing the corn variety may pose "important risks" to the environment. “Because of the proximity of the planting period, the Agriculture Ministry has decided today to take a precautionary measure that means to temporarily prohibit the cultivation of the corn MON810 on the national territory in order to protect the environment,” said a ministry statement.
Monsanto has said it does not market MON810 in France because the company seeks planting where it has a broad farmer and government support.
