Mexico lifts regional GM cotton planting ban

The Mexican Ministry of the Environment has overturned restrictions on the cultivation of genetically modified cotton in the Mexicali valley region in Lower California state, according to unconfirmed media reports. The intervention of the Ministry of Agriculture and the state governor smoothed the way to convincing the Ministry of the Environment to allow planting on the area covering over 32,000 ha.

Growers already have the required seed for the 2012 season, according to the daily Observador.
