Genetically Modified Seeds are created by introducing new genes into their DNA.


According to the available information, GM seeds and plant propagating material can enter the EU due to labeling/traceability issues with GM seed lots, contamination of conventional seed lots, and accidental release into the environment of grains imported for food and animal feed. Even though cases of uncontrolled release of authorised Genetically Modified Seeds as well as release of unauthorised GMOs have been reported, they can generally be attributed to accidental and technically unavoidable presence with little environmental impact. In conclusion, the likelihood of GM seeds and plant propagating material illegally entering EU cultivation is low. Specific monitoring programmes, however, must be established and maintained to facilitate European farmers’ compliance with current GMO legislation.
