RUSSIA TO ALLOW GM CROPS TO BE GROWN
Ag Professional magazine reports:

Russia is going to allow genetically modified (GM) crops to be grown within the country, according to a government decree.

The new decision will take effect July 1, 2014. However, registration for GM seeds is anticipated to take a couple years.

The first harvest of GM soybeans in Russia could be as early as 2016-2017, according to the president of the Russian Grain Union, Arkady Zlochevskiy.

Currently GM crops can only be grown in experimental fields. Only certain varieties of imported grains can be GM. Approximately 22 plant varieties are approved for import.
