Brazil Senate OKs GMO (genetically modified organism) regulations

The Brazilian Senate has approved the provisional measure to allow the growing of genetically modified crops at a distance of just 500 m from conservation areas. The lower house had passed the measure in January (Agrow No 512, p 14). The regulation does not cover areas of environmental protection, APAs. President Lula da Silva signed the measure in late October (Agrow No 509, p 17). The measure is due to come into force with the president's acceptance at the end of this month.
