Brazil OKs 15 GMO trials and imports

The Brazilian biosafety authorities have approved this month field trials on 15 genetically modified crops. They include trials variously for input and output traits in cotton, maize, rice and soybeans. Monsanto was granted eight of the approvals, BASF two, and there were one each for DuPont, Delta and Pine Land (Monsanto), Syngenta, and for two Brazilian bodies, the Embrapa Soja and Fundacao Pesquisa Agropecuaria. The national biosafety commission, the CTNBio, also approved imports of GMOs at its March meeting, including lines of yield-enhancing rice, insect-resistant soybeans, herbicide-tolerant soybeans and stacked insect-resistant and herbicide-tolerant maize.
