Paraguay ups GM seed border controls

Paraguayan authorities are to strengthen border controls against the potential import of genetically modified seed. The plant health and seed quality service, the Senave, is also to carry out a series of cotton and soybean field inspections. The service has recently seized 2 tonnes of contraband imported GM cotton from Argentina (see this issue). It says that 5 tonnes of GM cotton lacking any identification were intercepted in the 15 days to September 27th. The Senave is encouraging soybean growers to fulfill the rules in force for planting GM soybeans, such as buffer strips and notifying nearby communities of pesticide spraying. Planting for both crops starts in October.
