Brazil picks body to assess GM sorghum

The Brazilian technical biosafety commission, the CTNBio, has elected a four-member committee to evaluate recent unpublished applications for genetically modifed sorghum lines. They are for field trials and exports of sorghum that can be employed for producing flour for baking, industrial starch and for forage, the Ministry of Science and Technology notes. The body will also consider bylaws and gene flow monitoring between GM and conventional maize in Parana state. The commission also approved at its June meeting a Monsanto request to substitute the post-commercialisation monitoring plan for its GM glyphosate-tolerant MON1445 cotton. The company sought to switch to the “general plan” of its insect-resistant and glyphosate-tolerant MON531xMON1445 cotton.
