Soya was one of the first plants to be genetically modified. GM RoundUp Ready® soy was introduced onto the world market in 1996. Today, RoundUp Ready® soy (MON40-3-2) makes up over 70% of all commercialized GMOs worldwide.

Applications for approval of various GM soy varieties have been submitted to the EU authorities, so the number of EU-approved varieties is expected to increase over the coming years.
