Chile plants 24,000 ha GMO area

Chilean farmers planted some 24,000 ha of GM crops in 2013/14, according to the biotechnology association, the ChileBio. That is 1,000 ha lower than two years ago. GM maize lines made up 82% of the GM crops sown, oilseed rape accounted for 12% and soybeans 6%. All of the GM crop produce was for export. The only approvals in Chile are for planting for export. There is a contradiction in the policy, chileBio complains. The country imports GM produce en masse from neighbouring countries. The association further notes that several public entities in Chile have advanced R&D on several GM crops, but are unable to take advantage of their achievements.
