Dear GENET-news readers,

this are the informations on Pioneer's web site concerning the
state of approval of GM crops for import and use for food. It
is meant to provide the U.S. and Canadian farmers with
appropriate informations for their decision to plant GM crops
when their harvest shall exported legally. It does not inform
farmers about the current situation amongst European retailers
and the state of willingness to buy such GM crops.

Yours,
Hartmut Meyer
