    French body says Monsanto maize needs more study

    REFILE-French body says Monsanto maize needs more study

    PARIS, Dec 22 (Reuters) - More research is needed into Monsanto's MON genetically modified maize MON 810, the only biotech crop commercially grown in Europe, to assess its environmental impact, a French advisory body said.

    The opinion given by biotech committee HCB, published on Tuesday, was requested by the French government, which last year banned cultivation of MON 810 citing environmental concerns.

    In a debate about whether to renew the licence for the maize type, France and other European Union states have criticised as insufficient a favourable opinion in June from the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA). ID:nLU867385
