In the EU, the chief crops (all approved for sale by the European Commission) are one Monsanto GM soybean (GTS 40/3/2) on the existing products register, processed foods derived from seven GM oilseed rape varieties (AgrEvo TOPAS 19/2, Plant Genetic Systems MS8/RF3, MS1/RF2 and MS1/RF1, Monsanto GT73 and Hoechst/AgrEvo Falcon GS 40/90 and Liberator L62), two GM cottonseed varieties (Monsanto 1445 and 531) and five maizes (Ciba-Geigy Bt176, Monsanto MON810, AgrEvo T25, Novartis Bt11 and Pioneer MON809).
Bayer Cropscience opted for Belgium because the transgenic oilseed rape in question (Ms8xRf3) was developed a dozen or so year ago by the Belgian firm, Plant Genetic Systems, which was bought up by Bayer Cropscience.
