June 18, 2015, www.gmwatch.org | “German beekeepers have called for a nationwide ban on cultivating GM plants, reports the German NGO keine-gentechnik.de. The call by the German Beekeepers Association (DIB), which represents almost 100,000 beekeepers, comes after Europe adopted controversial legislation enabling member states to opt-out of the cultivation of GMOs that have been approved at the EU level.”

GMO Free USA 100,000 German Beekeepers Call for GMO Crop Cultivation Ban: The German Beekeepers Association (DIB), which represents almost 100,000 beekeepers, is urging Agriculture Minister Christian Schmidt to implement a Germany-wide ban on cultivation. Bees fly up to eight kilometres in search of food, the DIB said, so a juxtaposition of GM crop cultivation zones and GMO-free zones within Germany would be “environmentally and agriculturally unacceptable”. “Bees know no borders,” the DIB added. There is no such thing as co-existence. GMO crops will inevitably contaminate non-GMO and organic crops. BAN GMOs
