Dialogue about GMO: we answer new questions
Can the government guarantee that the ban on cultivation of MON810 maize will be introduced still in April?
We can proceed according to the law. It will be possible to introduce the ban ... after prior approval from the European Commission has been obtained.
The problem, says Haefeker, has a number of causes, one being the varroa mite, introduced from Asia, and another is the widespread practice in agriculture of spraying wildflowers with herbicides and practicing monoculture. Another possible cause, according to Haefeker, is the controversial and growing use of genetic engineering in agriculture.

It is very obvious now that Monsanto is what is causing the bee colony die offs. Given that Monsanto has just bought the world's largest bee research firm, doesn't that tell us something? Doesn't that make it quite clear that the owners and executives of Monsanto are well aware of what their crap products do? I think the writing is on the wall. Monsanto needs a full investigation and audit, they need to be raided.
