More Greek farmers approve of GM corn despite ban
A new study published in the Journal of Agribiotechnology Management and Economics indicates that 61 percent of Greek farmers support the use of genetically modified corn if the ban on its cultivation were lifted.
Greece’s government banned Bt corn planting using the safeguard clause in the European Union’s directive on the release of GMOs.
“The study showed that 56 percent of respondents would adopt Bt corn if it was sold at the same price as conventional corn, while 68 percent would adopt it for the reduction in production costs resulting from the non-use of insecticides,” repoted AllAboutFeed.com.
The study’s conclusion showed there is no strong consensus in rejecting GM crops in Greece. The study recommended that EU and Greek policymakers recognize this fact.
