Argentina Approves 60th GM Seed
Monday, 2019/10/14 | 09:16:40

ISAAA; October 10, 2019

 

Argentina's Secretaria de Alimentos y Bioeconomía has approved a genetically modified (GM) corn for commercial planting. The crop has passed the rigorous evaluations set by national agencies on agricultural biotechnology and food safety, the Comision Nacional Asesora de Biotecnologia Agropecuaria (CONABIA) and Servicio Nacional de Sanidad y Calidad Agroalimentaria (SENASA) and the Ministry of Agriculture.

 

The newly-approved GM corn with insect resistance and herbicide tolerance was developed by Monsanto, and is the 60th GM seed approved for commercial planting in Argentina since 1996, according to CONABIA. The Ministry's Resolution 103/2019 released on September 30, 2019 states that the Secretary authorizes the commercialization of the seed, of the products and by-products derived from it, from the corn events MON-87427-7 x MON-89Ø34-3 x SYN-IR162-4 x MON-ØØ6Ø3-6 (OECD), the intermediate combinations, and of all the progeny derived from the crossings of this material with any corn not genetically modified.

 

For more details, read the news article (in Spanish) in Agrovoz. The Resolution is available here.
