Ukraine to allow cultivation of GM crops

Ukraine may soon join the list of European countries that allow genetically modified crops, prompted by a new government proposal to permit the growth and sale of GM soybean and corn in the country.

“Due to the fact that the majority of the EU countries continue to restrict the growth of GM crops, the Ukrainian market can attract big interest from some of the world’s leading producers of GM products and crops,” he explains.

According to Nikolay Prysyazhnyuk of Ukraine’s Ministry of Agrarian Policy and Food, the Ministry has submitted the proposal for consideration by the Cabinet. The proposal was supported by six of Ukraine’s leading agricultural associations, along with a group of well-known Ukrainian agricultural experts, and is expected to pass into law by the end of the year.
