Study Adverse Effects of Transgenic Cops: Pawar

Germany has Filed Suit against Brandenburg District
Christoph Plass of Liebenwalde

Germany has filed suit against Germany's Brandenburg District, claiming that its regulations
regarding separation distances for GM maize interfered with his right to farm.

Brandenburg has established a minimum separation distance of 800 meters between GM maize and any nature preserve. In the Oberhavel region, where he owns farm land, so much area is devoted to nature preserves that he would only be able to grow GM maize on one farm.

"That is cold-blooded confiscation", Plass says. He also complains that the process of gaining an exemption from the separation requirement is too expensive and complicated. It requires proof that
the GM maize will not threaten an endangered species of butterfly.
