From Reuters:

EU environment ministers held talks on Monday on proposals to let member states decide individually whether or not to ban the cultivation of genetically modified (GM) crops, in a bid to unblock a paralysis in EU GM approvals.

The proposals include an amendment to EU rules on GM cultivation that would allow governments to ban cultivation of approved GM crops on social or economic grounds, such as public opposition or to safeguard organic farming.
