Ukraine's Farm Ministry said on Wednesday it would ask the government and
the parliament to ban imports and planting of genetically modified (GMO)
soybeans in the country, September 2005.

"We are going to adopt a decision to ban planting and imports of GMO
soybeans," Ivan Dymchak, deputy farm minister, told reporters. "At the
moment we are talking only about soybeans.

"We want to have the status of a country which produces only clean
agriculture products," he added.

Ukraine is a traditional importer of soy meal and imported 78,200 tonnes in
the 2003/04 season and 74,300 in 2002/03. It has imported 47,700 tonnes so
far this season.

Ukraine imports soy meal mostly from Brazil.
