Il Friuli

The Regional Administrative Court of Friuli Venezia Giulia has rejected the request made by Giorgio Fidenato to suspend the orders for removal of the cultivation of MON 810 maize in place on their own plots. For the Region Vice President and Head of the Agricultural Resources Sergio Bolzonello, it is "a win across the board, the result of an application of the law that the regional government has always pursued, speaking with his legislative initiative where gaps have been found regulations. But we do not want to think of this episode as a clash between the parties, but rather as a step forward in the protection of high quality agricultural land of Friuli Venezia Giulia."
