Mexico Approves Testing Sites For GM Corn

On 6 Janaury 2012, a Global Agricultural Information Network (GAIN) Report prepared by U.S. Foreign Agricultural Services in Mexico, covered the Mexican government's decision in late December 2011 to approve testing permits for gene-modified (GM) corn.  The permits were issued by the Secretariat of Agriculture, Livestock, Rural Development, Fisheries and Food's compliance agency, the National Service of Health, Food Safety, and Food Quality (SENASICA).

Approvals are for testing experimental plantings for two varieties of GM corn on 63 hectares in the state of Sinaloa.
