Braunschweig-based Bundesamt fur Verbraucherschutz said it would allow planting of Amflora on a site of no more than 20 ha (49 acres) in the country’s north-eastern state of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern in 2009 and 2010.
The planned planting did not pose dangers for people or the environment, the agency said.
However, the approval was subject to a number of conditions, it said.
Importantly, the potatoes grown at the site were not allowed to be used as food or animal feed, the agency said.
BVL noted that EU authorities had yet to decide on approving Amflora.
