Chile: Agricultural Biotechnology Annual

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)

While Chile remains the tenth largest producer of seeds in the world and the United States is the largest market for Genetically Engineered (GE) seeds, seed developers and researchers can only use GE technology for research and propagation purposes. There is no commercial GE crop production in Chile. Chile applies a specific normative to regulate the use of GE plant material. Chile does not require GE food products derived from GE technology to carry any labels. If Chile could produce GE products commercially, it could be a viable producer of transgenic sugar beets, corn and alfalfa.
