Gov't praises China's approval of soybean and corn seeds for consumption

Agriculture Minister Norberto Yauhar met with his Chinese counterpart Han Chang Fu in Peking

Following a meeting between Agricultural ministers of Argentina and China, the Asian giant approved three genetically modified soybean types for consumption, including the RR2BT seed resistant to the imidazolinonas and the glufosinat-ammonium herbicides.

Agriculture Minister Norberto Yauhar met with his Chinese counterpart Han Chang Fu in Peking. “This is one of the most important news of the past years for the country in terms of foreign trade,” Yauhar said as he confirmed the purchase of 60,000 tons of local corn by the government of Xi Jinping.

According to the government, Buenos Aires-Peking agreement represents a new step in transgenic seeds trade that account for most of Argentina’s agricultural production, mainly of soy –the local “golden” commodity export-, using the RR glyphosate -resistant type developed by Monsanto.

The dealt sealed under the margins of the first China-Latin America Agriculture Ministers Forum involves also the approval of the 1161 corn type for consumption in China.
