  1. The economical pressure behind expensively developed GMOs must be huge. So if seed producing enterprises see a chance to distribute their products in Africa, and get revenue from the disposal and the licences out of the poor farming system there, why shouldn’t they be interested? It’s a market. But as the article says, I don’t think it really solves the problem. Also, longterm consequences of using genetically modified organisms are still not clear. There are good reasons for banning MON 810.

  2. And just an adding point in the running debate
    about GMO: The discussion about GMO should be balanced and not be
    overheated. But beside the German ban on genetically
    modified maize crops in 2009 also the
    GM potato is still on experimental status in Germany. And for that there
    are more reasons then only a stomach feeling by politicians and
    scientists. Especially the problem with licencing and patents is
    threatening a sustainable farming. Farming with GM crops is combined
    with the idea of big scale farming. Beside environmental threats, just
    think about the economical implications. Who will benefit of this GMO
    system and who will be trapped? If the big agro-enterprises get a
    multiple of profits by selling the crops for bioethanol production
    instead of selling maize for consumption, do you really think that these
    enterprises discover their philantropist side and develop the food
    sector? They are interested in a sustainable crops production. But the
    question is: How do these enterprises define sustainability?
