Brazil non-GM crop grower group formed

The Brazilian association of non-genetically modified crop farmers, the Abrange, was founded last month. It seeks to inform consumers of conventionally-grown produce. Abrange executive-secretary Ricardo Souza told the official news agency, Agencia Brasil, that the association is “not a company, but a unique voice to speak up for the sector that produces sufficient crops to meet demand”. Mr Souza says that the association is concerned with segregation of GM and non-GM crops. “We wish to exchange information on the best methods of separation from planting of crops to delivery of produce,” he says. The association is apolitical, he adds. “We are a commercial body, focusing on the niche market that does not want to buy GM products.” Brazil has extended its GM crop range with three maize products and a provisional cotton approval this year ( Agrow No 551, p 22).
