Brazil and Argentina to intensify ag research

Brazil and Argentine authorities are to “intensify” co-operation in agricultural research, the Brazilian agricultural research corporation, the Embrapa, says. The Argentine Minister of Agriculture, Julián Dominguez, has visited Brazil this month to discuss exchange programmes. One area cited was biotechnology. The Minister met researchers from the Embrapa and learned of some of its biotechnology studies. They included research into disease- and stress-resistant plants. The corporation co-developed with BASF the “first Brazilian” genetically modified crop. The GM imidazolinone herbicide-tolerant soybeans were approved for commercial release earlier this year ( Agrow No 585, p 22). The Embrapa is also developing disease-resistant beans, and insect-resistant coffee, cotton and sugar cane.
