Tests of soybean fields in six regions of Ukraine indicate that almost half of soybeans grown in Ukraine are genetically modified

Tests of soybean fields in six regions of Ukraine indicate that almost half of soybeans grown in Ukraine are genetically modified, Gabriel Paun, president of Romania’s Agent Green Association, tells UNIAN. Ukrainian law bans cultivation of GMO crops. Under the free trade pact with the EU, Ukraine has to adopt its legislation to comply with the EU’s strict GMO rules. Paun said his group tested samples from 10 fields in each of these key soy growing regions: Poltava, Khmelnitsky, Kiev, Kirovograd, Zhytomyr, Vinnytsia. Of the 60 samples, 29 were GMO, reported Paun. Last spring, Chinese corn buyers switched from the US to Ukraine, alleging that Ukrainian corn is GMO-free, while American is not.
