  • France's government has banned Monsanto's (NYSE:MON) MON 810 genetically modified maize even though the country's highest court has twice struck down similar measures.
  • The agriculture ministry timed the latest diktat to prevent any sowing of the maize ahead of a debate on April 10 of a draft law that would ban genetically modified organisms.
  • While France would like to ban GMOs in the EU, the bloc is divided on the issue.
