Colombia: Agricultural Biotechnology Annual

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)

Colombia remains open to the adoption of biotech-derived commodities and innovative technologies. While area planted to GE (genetically engineered) corn decreased in response to an overall decrease in corn, there was slight recovery in cotton plantings. Colombia recently approved commercial plantings of the first domestically developed corn genotype containing the TC-1507 off-patent event. The Colombian government and stakeholders have to finalize discussions on biotechnology regulations regarding low-level presence (LLP), GE labeling, and GE seeds to stabilize Colombia’s regulatory environment for GE products.
