Bulgaria remains a country against GM crops

Ministry of Agriculture and Food reaffirms its position: Bulgaria to be exempted from GM crops. This is stated in the 10 notification letters that the Ministry sent to the European Commission in order to be guaranteed that GM products would not be cultivated our country. Thus, it would be impossible corrections of the geographical coverage to be made, based on the submitted applications or authorizations of GMOs cultivation. Under Directive 2001/18 / EC by October 3, 2015, each Member State has the opportunity to indicate whether it wishes to ban the cultivation of GM products.
