Paraguay OKs import of two GM cotton lines

Paraguayan authorities have granted exceptional use import approval for 60,000 bags of two Monsanto genetically modified cotton products. The plant health and seed quality service, the Senave, has issued the approvals for Monsanto’s glyphosate-tolerant Roundup Ready (MON1445) and its stacked insect-resistant and glyphosate-tolerant Bollgard Roundup Ready (MON1445xMON531) cotton through Resolution 244. It further approves “the sale of national seeds as common seed in cases of exceedance of adventitious presence of GM material”. The imported seed is to carry labels, reading “exceptional import under Decree 9503 for 2012-13 season”.
