FRENCH MAIZE FARMERS SEEN EMBRACING GM, EVENTUALLY

LE MANS, France - Gregoire Berthe, president of maize seed growers union
SEPROMA, was cited as saying Thursday that French maize farmers will be
swift in adopting new genetically modified (GM) strains once regulatory
hurdles are swept away under European Union law in the pipeline, adding, "It
certainly won't happen next year. But once it takes off, I see exponential
growth in their use and it will happen quite quickly."
Speaking at the annual conference of the French maize growers' association
AGPM, Berthe was further cited as saying that the maize varieties approved
so far under EU legislation were not totally suited to the needs of French
farmers, but more were waiting in the wings.
