Syngenta suspends Duracade in Canada

Syngenta has confirmed that it is not including Canada in its "Right to Grow" programme for genetically modified insect-resistant Agrisure Duracade maize. Duracade maize stacks were introduced in the US and Canada this year, but some major grain handlers have indicated that they would not accept deliveries of crops containing the trait until it has been approved in China and other major export markets (Agrow No 683, p 15). The company entered into an agreement with US distribution company, Gavilon Grain, to enable farmers to plant Duracade maize with the assurance that there would be a market for it (Agrow No 683, p 2). However, Canada is not included in the programme, Syngenta points out.
