Mexican Ag Ministry issues Monsanto pilot GMO licence

Mexico has permitted Monsanto to step up its planting of genetically modified maize to the pilot stage. It is the first such approval. The Ministry of Agriculture, the Sagarpa, approved Monsanto’s glyphosate-tolerant Roundup Ready maize this month, dependent on the acceptance of the Ministry of the Environment.
