Romania - GM Soya still being grown

In October 2007, the Romanian National Environmental Guard announced that it had discovered 290 hectares of GM soy being illegally cultivated in Batar in the county of Bihor at the border with Hungary

Monsanto’s Roundup Ready soybeans have been planted in Romania since 1999, but when they joined the EU in 2007 that cultivation became illegal. Monsanto do not have a licence to sell GM soybeans in European Union.
