Colombia planted 108,000 ha GM crops in 2011

Colombia increased its planting of genetically modified crops in 2011 to over 100,000 ha, Fundación Antama reports. The figures include regions where plantings were made for the first time last year and of trials. The 108,577 ha included plantings of over 59,000 ha of GM maize, more than 49,000 ha of GM cotton, and just 4 ha of blue roses. The association cites the Ministry of Agriculture’s plant and animal health biotechnology corporation, the ICA. The national agricultural biotechnology association, Agro-Bio Colombia, reported a large rise in all commercial plantings to just over 32,000 ha earlier this year ( Agrow No 631, p 16).
