Brazil to plant 400,000 ha of GM maize

Brazilian farmers are to plant 400,000 ha of genetically modified maize in the country’s first season with approved transgenic lines, according to the business daily, Gazeta Mercantil. That would amount to around 4% of last year’s maize planted area. Brazil has approved its first three GM maize lines this year. They are Bayer CropScience‘s glufosinate-tolerant LibertyLink (T25), Monsanto‘s insect-resistant Guardian/Yieldgard (MON810) and Syngenta’s corn borer ( Ostrinia nubilalis)-resistant Agrisure TL (Bt11 - Agrow No 546, p 22).
