Ukraine's Ministry of Agrarian Policy will commence a pilot project on development of GM crops, as announced by Mykola Prysyazhnyuk, Minister of Agricultural Policy and Food during the press briefing at the opening of seed plant in Poltava Obalst.

"Today we have agreed that after the completion of the necessary legislation we will start the experimental sowing of GMO crops in a closed environment in order to understand the effectiveness and impact of genetic engineering for feed crops, which could be very important for our future agriculture.
