Transgenic corn variety is acceptable, says French biotech council

The French government’s biotech advisory council, Haut Conseil des Biotechnologies (HCB), published a report last Friday on the Bt11 variety of transgenic corn marketed by Swiss producer, Syngenta. HCB’s scientific advisory committee considered that “cultivation of Bt11 corn was acceptable”. The report addresses only the cultivation of this cereal variety, which is already authorized for animal feed. The committee noted, however, that cultivation should be accompanied by specific measures such as setting up refuge areas or regulating the coexistence of genetically modified (GM) and non-GM corn.
