BIOTECH BITS

Romania's farm lobby is urging the EU to approve cultivation of more biotech crops, warning that Europe's current attitude is hindering its economic prosperity, according to All Headline News service. The farm federation's chairman claims the EU isn't interested in cultivating biotech soybeans because most member states don't have the right climate and soil conditions. Agriculture minister Valeriu Tabara, who supports biotechnology, says Romania loses $131 million annually because it doesn't cultivate biotech soybeans and instead imports them from Brazil for use as feed. Romania was forced to ban biotech soybean cultivation when it became an EU member state in 2007.
