Argentina: Agricultural Biotechnology Annual

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)

Due to the government’s efforts to protect agricultural exports to China, over facilitating the entry of new technology, only two genetically engineered events (GE) received final approval in 2017: one soybean and one safflower. As such, China’s approval of GE events continues to be a top priority for Argentina. Despite the intense dialog between the government, industry, and producer associations, the seed royalty system continues to be an unresolved issue. The Ministry of Agro-Industry submitted its seed law proposal back in October 2016 but it has not moved forward in the Congress since then.
