The agreement was signed between Indian Agricultural Association, Hindustan Agro</p><p>Co-Op Ltd (HACL) and United Innovation Corporation (UIC), a subsidiary of ROSATOMState Atomic Energy Corporation of Russia.</p><p> As part of the agreement, India-Russia joint venture (JV) will be formed in which HACLwill have the majority 51% stake holding.</p><p> UIC will be a technology partner and will help set up the irradiation centres. In firstphase 7 centers will be set up in Maharashtra in Sindhurg, Satara, Solapur, JNPT, Jalana,Nagpur and Pune.</p><p> Importance of agreement for the first time paves the way for establishment of networkof integrated infrastructure irradiation centres in India to reduce agricultural losses. Theseirradiation centres will help in treatment of perishable food items to improve shelflife and cut post-harvest losses.</p><p> Generally cobalt-60 radioisotope is used as a radioactive source for gamma irradiation.Then International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) recommends the irradiation dosesfor food irradiation. Benefits: Irradiation is equivalent to pasteurization for solid foods,but it is not the same as sterilization. It does not reduce the nutritional value of foodproducts and does not change their organoleptic properties and appearance.</p><p> The irradiation treatment of food and food grains preserves them for longer time, preventthe spread of invasive pests, delay/eliminate ripening or sprouting and reduce the risk offood borne illness.</p><p>Supreme Court stays commercial release of GM mustard The Supreme Court has stayed the commercial release of Genetically Modified (GM)</p><p>mustard crop till October 17, 2016. It has asked the Central Government to seek publicopinion before releasing the variety for cultivation purpose.</p><p> Order in this regard was issued by Supreme Court Bench of Chief Justice T.S. Thakurand Justice A.M. Khanwilkar on petition filed by Aruna Rodrigues.</p><p> The petition had alleged that sowing of the GM Mustard seeds will be undertakenwithout relevant tests and without entire bio-safety dossier for commercial launchof GM mustard.</p><p> It also had urged the Supreme Court to prohibit open field trials and the commercialrelease of Herbicide Tolerant (HT) crops, including HT Mustard DMH 11 and its parentlines/variants.
