In Portugal, the Alentejo region has witnessed highest increase in GM crops, which climbed to 90% compared to 2010. The Lisbon and Tagus Valley region also witnessed 51 percent increase in GM crop plantation. Gladly, the northern and central regions of Portugal saw a decrease in the amount of GM corn plantations.
