From the Prague Post:
The European Union is being criticized as yields from genetically modified (GM) crops plummet across the 27 member states and favor grows for organic crops, all at a time when the future of food and agricultural policies are more important than ever for world leaders.
In Europe, GM crops and organic crops have drastically different yields in the first years of production. GM crops are at the top with 20 percent greater yields than standard crops. To produce the same amount of crops with organic seeds, however, requires up to three times the land.
Europe's downward trend will likely continue in light of newly proposed legislation that would allow members for the first time to ban GM crops without providing any scientific evidence to justify their decision.
