There is no commercial production of Genetically Engineered (GE) crops in Chile, with the exception of seeds for re-export. Chile is home to world-wide companies that develop and propagate GE seeds and export the resulting GE seeds. If the Chilean government were to allow the commercial production of additional GE crops, Chile could be a viable producer of GE sugar beets, corn, and alfalfa. The Government of Chile (GOC) did not update its plant or animal biotechnology regulations this past year. However, this report contains updates to the Production and Trade Section (Chapter 1), as well as a new section on Microbial Biotechnology (Chapter 3).
