France reinstating GMO ban

France wishes to reinstate within the next few days a ban on the cultivation of the genetically modified maize crop MON810 despite an overturned decision of the country’s highest court last year. The government maintains that MON810 involves environmental risks and wants the ban to be reinstated before spring sowing starts in some regions.
