Europe approves more GMO corn hybrids grown in Canada

There’s been a flurry of approvals in Europe in recent months pointing to increased acceptance of genetically modified crops.

In late October, the European Union (EU) approved import and processing of corn containing two GMO transgenic recombinations that create new GMO lines: MON89034 (YieldGard VT Pro) and MON88017 (YieldGard VT Rootworm/RR2). Pioneer
Hi-Bred’s 59122xNK603 was also approved.

Monsanto says the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) said that these products were safe in December and April respectively.
