Vietnam to grow GM maize in 2011

Vietnam is set to commence the cultivation of genetically modified insect-resistant maize next year, reports the Vietnam News Agency quoting the Deputy Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development, Bui Ba Bong. Field trials have reportedly been successfully completed. The unnamed GM line is to pass a final test, following which it will be “planted on a large scale”. It is expected to reduce the country’s imports of maize-based fodder. Vietnam also plans to grow GM cotton and soybeans by 2014, the report adds. It drafted GMO field trial rules in 2008 ( Agrow No 539, p 20).
