Mozambique: Agricultural Biotechnology Annual
Mozambique has planted the first field trial of Genetically Engineered (GE) corn in the Chókwè District of Gaza Province in the southern part of the country on February 18, 2017, as part of the Water Efficient Maize for Africa (WEMA) program. Post expects that trials will continue and results will be shared in 2018. These are the first trials after the publication of the Mozambique Regulation on Biosafety related to the management of “Genetically Modified Organisms” (Decree no. 6/2007, of April 25, 2007) updated in late 2014.
