BIOTECH BITS

Peru's agriculture ministry and Parliament are at loggerheads over biotech crops in Peru, according to P&CP sister publication Agrow. The Parliament has unanimously approved a 10-year moratorium on the import and use of such crops. The legislation establishes the environment ministry as the competent authority on the issue, and it creates a "technical evaluation and risk prevention assessment committee on the use of living modified organisms." The move comes a few months after Peru had approved a biosafety bill for biotech crops. National media report that Parliament's move annuls the agriculture ministry's regulation, which was expected to launch commercialization of biotech crops within three years.
