China: growing of genetically modified rice suspended

No genetically modified rice will be grown in China in the next five to ten years. This is reported by the Chinese financial magazine Economic Observer based on information from the Chinese Ministry of Agriculture.

Genetically modified rice has been grown in China for trial purposes since 1999, which has repeatedly led to contamination of conventional rice varieties. Rice is the staple diet for 1.3 billion people in China.

In Germany there are 208 initiatives actively campaigning for creating GM-free regions. The 30,312 farmers involved farm an area of 1.1million ha. The GM-Free Regions project of the German Association for Environmental Protection and Nature Conservation (BUND e.V.) has published a map (as of September 2011) showing all the GM-free regions in Germany. Newsflashes on the Internet site for GM-Free Regions report news from all over the world.
