BRUSSELS (Reuters) - EU countries voted on Monday in favour of renewing for five years the licence of weed-killer glyphosate, a key ingredient in Monsanto's top-selling Roundup.
The European Commission said in a statement that 18 countries had backed its proposal, with nine voting against and one abstaining.
