Monsanto Uprooted -- Germany Bans Cultivation of GM Corn

Germany has banned all cultivation of MON 810, a form of GM corn. However, their arguments against it might not stand in court, and they could face millions of euros in fines if Monsanto decides to challenge the prohibition.

Under the new regulations, the cultivation of MON 810, a GM corn produced by Monsanto, would be prohibited in Germany, as would the sale of its seed. German Agriculture Minister Ilse Aigner told reporters she had reasons to believe that the corn posed “a danger to the environment.”

“[Aigner] stressed that the ban should be understood as an ‘individual case’ and not as a statement of principle regarding future policy relating to genetic engineering.”
