Brazilian GM crop area up 21%

Adoption of genetically modified crops has risen by almost 21% in Brazil this year, agricultural newswire Agrolink reports. It cites estimates from agricultural market researchers Celeres. The area planted with GM cotton, maize and soybeans is estimated to have reached 31.8 million ha for the 2011/12 season. The estimate considered the period between the stated intention of planting and the start of actual sowing, and it beats the previous Celeres estimate of 30.5 million ha made in August ( Agrow No 622, p 20).
