Monsanto will halt production of genetically modified corn in all of Europe, except Spain, Portugal and Czech republic. The agribusiness multinational states not to spend any more money on trials, development, marketing, court cases or anything else to get GM corn accepted in Europe.

cheers, press on Europe and get those last three countries eliminated and then the world has a resevoir of non-monsanto seeds to use.
i don't know if there are other GMO seeds in use in Europe (Bt is one of them, there might be others too like the vitamin A in rice or potatoes genetic changes).

Hungary Destroys All Monsanto GMO Corn Fields
In Hungary genetically modified (GM) seeds are banned. There is no certainty that the GM crops they burned didn't spread any seeds or pollen before destroyed so checks will continue despite the law that states traders are supposed to make sure their products are GMO free! I know right?! During the investigation, they found Pioneer Monsanto products among the seeds planted. Once discovered they burned and wrote the years harvest off. They are that serious.
Most of the local farmers have complained since they discovered they were using GMO seeds. With the season already under way, it was too late to sow new seeds, so this years harvest was lost. The company that sold the seeds in Baranya county is now being liquided... so, if any compensation is paid, the money will be paid mainly to that companys creditors, rather than the farmers.

Fortunately, they grow many things like sweet corn, peas, gherkins, pickles, tomatoes, and poultry. Think Kansas.

Unfortunately, this beautiful country has a very conservative government which is trying to undermine freedom of the press, the power of the country's legal system, and the independence of the Hungarian Central Bank. They have instituted tough new laws making it possible to fine or jail the homeless for living on the street. Hungary is home to the third largest Jewish population in Europe, and that community is feeling increasingly under threat, as anti-Semitisim in Hungary is on the rise.
