China to Approve More GM Maize Varieties - Agri Ministry
Monday, 2022/05/23 | 08:01:07

The Chinese agriculture ministry announced plans to allow more genetically modified maize varieties developed by local companies.

 

According to ISAAA, China was the seventh-largest producer of biotech crops globally in 2019. It is also one of the six countries that initially adopted biotech crops in 1996. In 2019, approximately 3.2 million hectares were planted with biotech cotton and papaya in China. Early this year, Chinese agriculture ministry officials reported remarkable results in the pilot testing of GM soybeans and maize, which mark a historical milestone in the industrialization of these GM foods in the country.

 

The notice on the website of the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs indicates that the GM maize varieties that will be released soon include those developed by China National Seed Group, a unit of Syngenta Group, and a herbicide tolerant variety produced by Hangzhou Ruifeng Bio-Tech Co Ltd.
