Brazil OKs GMO trials

The Brazilian technical commission for biosafety, the CTNBio, approved all 11 of the field trial applications for genetically modified crops at its September meeting. The same meeting withdrew all seven applications on the agenda for commercial release of GM crops. The approved trials include seven for soybeans and four for maize, all combining insect resistance and herbicide tolerance. There are four granted applications for Syngenta, while others came for Brazilian research companies. All but one of those were for agricultural co-operative Coodetec.
