Genetically Modified Corn Destroyed by Hungary

Genetically Modified Corn Destroyed by Hungary

 

Hungarian officials have taken the unusually strong step of destroying some 1,000 acres of corn which was found to be genetically modified, reports the Russian source RT.com.

 

A new law enacted in the country in March mandates that seeds must be evaluated as being genetically altered before sale to farmers, as GMOs are banned in Hungary due to health and environmental concerns.

Monsanto, the global leader in GMO seed production, had appealed to a Hungarian court to suspend the new resolution, but the country’s government instead opted to plough in the affected corn to prevent further GMO contamination.
