Paraguay inspection drive halts 800 ha of GM maize

Paraguayan authorities have stopped the sowing of some 816 ha of maize due to its use in the "multiplication of genetically modified lines". The plant health inspection service, the Senave, has carried out the inspections within the framework of the Seed and Protection of Crops Law (Law 385/94). Inspections have been made largely in three regions, finding plots that did not possess the corresponding registrations and in the majority of cases, hybrids used lacked supporting documentation while GMO tests proved positive. Of the halted production, 204 ha have been destroyed, and the rest put to other uses such as forage.
