GMO crop success has grown significantly since its commercialization in 1996. At its experimental nascence in 1996, only 1.7 million hectares of crops globally where GMO, compared against the 2008 total of 125 million hectares. The US is the top GMO producer, growing alfalfa, canola, cotton, corn, soybeans, squash, sugar beet, and papaya. African nations are most in need of the technology, though.
Definitely depends on what you mean by successful. Lots of genetically modified crops are grown in the US and thrive, but the practice of gene modification is very controversial and there seems to be a backlash against GMOs. Corn and soy are crops that are genetically modified frequently–and at large abundance.
