They include glyphosate-tolerant and insect-resistant events “from different companies”. The Ministry of Agriculture’s seed registry, the INASE, is to meet to discuss extending the deadline for importing the seeds, as the original deadline passed on August 29th, the national newspaper, el Observa, says. The resolution approving their import was made two days’ earlier. It quotes the INASE president, Enzo Benech, as saying that it anticipates trials to start from mid-September. “We are willing to be flexible over the [companies’ deadlines for] importing the materials,” he reportedly says. Commercialisation of the crops is scheduled for the 2011/12 season.
