Romanian farmers urge EU to approve GM soybeans

Romania’s national federation of farm producers has urged the EU to approve the cultivation of more genetically modified crops, reports the newswire, All Headline News. The federation’s chairman has been quoted as saying that the EU should come out of its conservative attitude that is hindering the economic prosperity of the continent in the absence of new technologies. He claims that the EU is not interested in GM soybean lines because most of the countries do not have the required micro-climatic and soil conditions. The report also quotes Romanian Agriculture Minister Valeriu Tabara, who supports biotechnology, as saying that the country loses $131 million annually because it does not cultivate GM soybeans and imports them from Brazil for use as feed. She reportedly claims that Romania is the only EU country that has good conditions for the crop.
