Brazil to conduct GM sugarcane trials
Syngenta has been approved to conduct trials of genetically modified sugarcane in Brazil. The trials are likely to begin this fall, according to the Hindu Business Line.
The trials may last at least two harvests before the Brazilian authorities give permission for its commercial launch, Daniel Bachner, global sugarcane head of Syngenta told the Hindu Business Line.
This GM sugarcane was developed by Syngenta and it is tolerant to herbicides, pests and the stem borer.
Permission for the field trials was granted by Brazil’s bio-safety body, the National Biosecurity Council.
Although investments in sugarcane have been low compared with other crops, the growth rate of sugarcane production is expected to increase. This is why investors seen GM sugarcane holding promise for higher investments in the future.
