Monsanto offers wider Argentine maize plant impact study

Monsanto has proposed to carry out a wider and more exhaustive environmental impact study into its proposed construction of a maize seed facility in Argentina's Cordoba state, national media report. It is also proposing to hold a public discussion on its plans. Cordoba's Secretary of the Environment has this month rejected a study from the company as "not addressing basic requirements on residues". A regional court halted the company's plans last month until an environmental impact assessment had been carried out and a public audience debate had been held (Agrow No 681, p 17). The Cordoba government's approval of the plant's construction was conditional on the presentation of an acceptable impact study from the company. Monsanto seeks eventually to invest 1,500 million pesos ($187 million at the current rate) and produce 60,000 tonnes of seed a year at the plant.
