EU approval nears for Monsanto's GM soybeans

The European Commission is free to approve Monsanto's genetically modified glyphosate-tolerant Roundup Ready 2 Yield (MON89788) soybean line, following the failure of EU Agriculture Ministers to return an opinion on the issue. The Ministers could not reach the qualified majority needed to accept or reject the Commission's proposed approval of import, processing and use in food and feed of the GM line. The case had been referred to the Ministers after the EU GMO regulatory committee similarly failed to reach a consensus on Monsanto's soybeans ( Agrow No 554, p 11).
