Brazil OKs more GMO trials

The Brazilian technical commission for biosafety, the CTNBio, approved field trials for all nine applications for genetically modified crops on its October meeting agenda. They included six for GM soybeans, two for cotton and one for beans. Five of the soybean applications came from the agricultural co-operative, Coodetec, for twin-trait Monsanto events, while the other came from Bayer CropScience for a glyphosate-tolerant and hydroxyphenyl pyruvate dioxygenase (HPPD)-inhibitor event. The cotton events were from the Brazilian agricultural corporation, the Embrapa, and Monsanto subsidiary Delta and Pine Land. The Embrapa was also granted approval for a golden mosaic-resistant and imidazolinone herbicide-tolerant bean. It is developing products with tolerance to BASF’s imidazolinones. All eight applications for commercial release of GMOs were withdrawn from the agenda for the second consecutive month ( Agrow No 600, p 15).
