BASF still planning GM trials in Europe
Date: Tue, 17 Jan 2012
Thank you for your interest in BASF. Mr. Marcinowski asked me to answer your question in his name.
So, presently we have no ongoing field trials in the EU. We have to finalise the mandatory post-trial monitoring in Germany, Czech Republic, Sweden, the Netherlands, Belgium and Finland.
For 2012 we are committed to conduct further field trials for 1 potato variety as we received questions from EFSA regarding our earlier submitted dossier. Those trials are planned to be conducted in Sweden, the Netherlands and in Germany. Trial permits are valid and we are in the selection phase for the final sites.
Don´t hesitate to contact me if you have further questions.
