The cultivation of genetically modified crops in Ireland was voted to be banned by the Irish government on Saturday, according to the Environmental News Network. The new policy specifies that the Government will "Declare the Republic of Ireland a GM-Free Zone, free from the cultivation of all GM plants"

The Irish government also plans to release a new voluntary GM-Free logo for all relevant food products made without the use of GM crops.
