Uruguay approves five GM maize lines

Uruguay has approved five genetically modified maize lines for commercial use this month. They are the first authorisations of GMOs following an 18-month national moratorium on such crops, which ended in 2008 ( Agrow No 549, p 20). Two of the approvals are for Monsanto, a further two for the Uruguayan company and Syngenta representative, Yalfin (Montevideo), of two Syngenta lines, and the other for Rutilan (Montevideo), a Dow representative in the country, for a Dow AgroSciences/DuPont developed line. All the applications were filed in 2009.
