Honduras positive on GMOs

Honduras is the only Central American country in which genetically modified crops are commercially grown, the USDA’s Foreign Agriculture Service (FAS) reports. Almost 16,000 ha of GM maize are planted annually out of a total maize area of 220,000 ha. The country has approved three GM maize events for commercialisation, while a fourth application is pending a decision on approval, it notes. The national biotechnology and biosafety committee is considering an application for the commercial release of Monsanto’s insect-resistant YieldGard VTPro (MON 89034) maize. It was approved for field trials in 2008.
