Argentine Parliament to mull new GMO rules

Proposed tightening of regulations on genetically modified crops in Argentina are to enter Parliament “soon”. The new rules would allow for more investment from the private sector, the journal, Nature, reports. It notes that public investment has lagged in recent years, and Argentina has lost its position as the regional vanguard adopter of the technology. Argentina fell behind Brazil as South America’s largest grower of GM crops last year ( Agrow No 587, pp 24-25). The country lacks intellectual property (IP) rules, and allows the re-use of seed without obligatory royalty payments to the seed developer. Monsanto recently decided to withhold the introduction of its latest generation GM soybeans in Argentina, until IP protection is ensured there ( Agrow No 586, p 2).
