Colombia plants record GM maize area

Colombian farmers have planted a record area of genetically modified maize, reaching almost 50,000 ha in the first half of 2012, biotechnology association Agro-Bio reports. The 49,710 ha of GM maize lines is some 18,100 ha more than in the same period last year, it says, citing figures from the Ministry of Agriculture’s plant and animal health biotechnology corporation, the ICA. The maize includes insect-resistant and herbicide-tolerant lines. Maize growers planted some 59,000 ha of GM lines in the whole of last year ( Agrow No 638, p 23).
