Greece extends ban on GM corn seed

ATHENS, Greece (AP)--Greece extended its ban on a genetically modified strain of corn seed developed by U.S. biotech giant Monsanto Co., for another two years, the Agriculture Ministry said May 27.

The ban on importing and cultivating MON810 has also been expanded to include 100 types of the seed--up from 70 last year, the ministry said in a statement.

The strain is genetically modified to produce a toxin that repels insects, thus reducing the need for farmers to use insecticides. The European Union authorized their use five years ago.
