Mexico uses underground for agbiotech publicity

The Mexican authorities are advertising the country’s agricultural biotechnology policies and regulations, as well as the application of the technology at a large underground railway station in the capital city. The Ministry of Agriculture mounted several protected posters in December in an area where some 70,000 passengers pass each day. Mexico has altered its policies on the nationally sensitive issue of planting of genetically modified maize in the past few years, paving the way for potential commercial GM maize planting ( Agrow No 564, p 18). The government permitted the first pilot planting of GM maize last year, an intermediate phase between small acreage field trials and commercial planting ( Agrow No 612, p 19).
