New Polish GMO bill would allow GMO-free zones

The environment ministry has prepared a new bill on GMO, which does not include a formal ban on the cultivation of transgenic plants, but provides tools which allow to practically exclude GMOs. Former environment minister professor Jan Szyszko said that the bill practically allows regions of Poland to remain GMO-free zones. Poland is seen as an ecologically clear country in the European Union, which produces more food than is needed in the country, but is restricted by EU quota.
