EINNEWS, November 29—Germany continues to draw the line against genetically modified crops.

In a decision Friday, the Federal Constitutional Court upheld restrictions on genetic farming and also ruled that anyone who engages in the practice should be held economically liable for any damage caused to conventional crops.

The suit was brought by Saxony-Anhalt against the country’s Genetic Engineering Act. The suit claimed that the act was a violation of occupational freedom. The court dismissed the claim and said that the restrictive rules against genetically engineered crops were “suitable and necessary and also appropriate.”
