Brazil GMO tech transfer deal close

Multinational companies are in advanced talks with the Brazilian agricultural research corporation, the Embrapa, over the transfer of technology for the development of a national variety of genetically modified maize. Embrapa researcher Edilson Paiva says that the corporation expects to launch a product in the next year, according to the Brazilian newspaper, O Estado de S Paulo. The researcher is also a member of Brazil’s GM crop approval body, the national technical commission for biosafety, the CTNBio. He has welcomed the Brazilian approval of GM crops this year, saying that the industry had been held back by regulations, but that “turbulence” is dissipating. The country has approved several herbicide-tolerant and insect-resistant varieties of GM maize in the past twelve months ( Agrow No 553, p 22).
