Colombian agbiotech lab opens for business

Colombia has launched an agricultural biotechnology-centred laboratory, the Ministry of Agriculture says. The Ministry’s national federation of cocoa producers, the Fedecacao, opened it in early February. Results from its research will be applied to the national cocoa-producing community, the Ministry adds. The laboratory will initially focus on plant health, using any methodology involving isolating and identifying micro-organisms that cause disease. It will carry out studies on Monilia pod rot ( Moniliophthora roreri) and other pathogens under controlled conditions.
