PODCAST: A Closer Look at the EU’s Changing Relationship with GM Corn in Feed – Season 3, Episode 5

13 May 2022 – With Russia’s invasion of Ukraine cutting the EU off from one of its main suppliers of non-genetically modified corn, feed producers across the bloc are now increasingly having to turn to genetically modified variants from the US and Brazil to make up the shortfall.
