Latvia and Greece have opted out of GMOs, as are Germany and Scotland, as part of the new allowances indicated in legislation that recently passed for EU countries.
Just last week, German Agriculture Minister Christian Schmidt informed German states of his intention to ban the use of GM crops. His announcement came shortly after the Scottish government announced it would ban GM crops to protect that country’s clean, green status.
According to Professor Carlo Leifert, Professor of Ecological Agriculture at Newcastle University, the Scottish Government’s decision to ban GM crops is right and that “there are likely to be significant commercial benefits from Scotland being clearly recognised as a GM-free region”.
