Report index



This report is intended primarily as a basis for discussion among forum’s participants.

In this report we describe the explorative research activities that we have conducted during the past seven years on the environmental and economic impact of the cultivation of the transgenic maize hybrids (Bt). In our view, the outcome of these research activities is useful in the definition of agreed research protocols suitable for settling the dispute over the safety of the cultivation of maize hybrids (Bt)and (Hr). Our action plan complies with the provisions laid down by EU directive 412/2015 and is based on the execution of simultaneus long-term bioassays on several test-organisms, primarely under real field, conditions in a specially equipped permanent agricultural research station.
