According to Reuters:

Monsanto said it was among companies affected by the French decision, calling the debate around glyphosate in Europe “political”.

Glyphosate, the active ingredient in Monsanto’s Roundup weedkiller, has stirred fierce debate over the past year since a World Health Organisation body classified it as a probable carcinogenic, and EU countries are discussing whether or not to extend its EU-wide license.

Glyphosate remains legal in the United States.

As an updated, the EU has voted to extend the license of Roundup for an additional 7 years. Although this approval is non binding.
