The Council of State of France rejected, by early May, the request of the maize producers and confirmed the order entered by the Minister of Agriculture in 14 April 2014 that forbids the cultivation of genetically modified maize MON810.

The maize plots declared as being OGM by the farmers of Midi-Pyrénées have been sampled and their analysis is ongoing. In case that the results confirm the cultivation of MON810 maize, the farmers will be asked to destroy the crops in those plots as soon as possible under the control of the state services.

Ms. Ségolène Royal, Minister of Ecology, Sustainable Development and Energy; and Mr. Stéphane Le Foll, Minister of Agriculture, Food and Forestry, embraced favourably the decision of the Council of State.

The two Ministers also adopted with pleasure the voting of the Senate (172 votes in favour and 147 against) of the bill already approved by the National Assembly that forbids, permanently, the cultivation of all the genetically modified maize varieties.
