Italy says no to GM crops

"Our aim is to provide more autonomy of choice to the single states in regard to the GMOs" This declared the Minister of agricultural food and forestry policies, Maurizio Martina


The Minister of agricultural food and forestry policies comments the refusal from the Lazio TAR of the request against the decree of the 12th of July adopted by the Ministry of Health in agreement with the Ministry of agricultural food and forestry policies and Ministry of Environment and Territory Protection regarding the “Adoption of emergency measures of the art. 54 of the CE Regulation n. 178/2002 concerning the cultivation of the GMO corn MON 810”.

“We are satisfied by the TAR’s sentence that confirms the decree promoted by the Ministry of agricultural food and forestry policies, in agreement with the Ministry of Health and Ministry of Environment in relation to the cultivation of GMOs in Italy.”
“We will continue the fight that we have launched and promoted also with other EU countries.
Our aim is to provide more autonomy of choice to the single states in regard to the GMOs. If we do not manage to find an agreement within June, it will be one of the most important dossier of the Italian Presidency of the EU. I believe that the Italian agricultural model has to valorise its particular characteristics in order to reinforce itself also in the international markets.”
This declared the Minister of agricultural food and forestry policies, Maurizio Martina, commenting the refusal from the Lazio TAR of the request against the decree of the 12th of July adopted by the Ministry of Health in agreement with the Ministry of agricultural food and forestry policies and Ministry of Environment and Territory Protection regarding the “Adoption of emergency measures of the art. 54 of the CE Regulation n. 178/2002 concerning the cultivation of the GMO corn MON 810”.
