Paraguayan authorities plan to strengthen border controls against illegal imports of genetically engineered seeds. The nation's plant health and seed quality service (Senave) also plans to carry out a series of cotton and soybean field inspections. Senave recently seized two metric tons of contraband - imported genetically enhanced cotton from Argentina. The agency says that five metric tons of GE cotton lacking any identification were intercepted during the 15 days before Sept. 27. Senave is encouraging soybean growers to comply with rules for planting GE soybeans, such as buffer strips and notifying nearby communities of pesticide spraying. Planting for both crops starts this month. Source: Agrow
