Mozambique: Agricultural Biotechnology Annual

Mozambique planted its first genetically modified (GM) corn trial at Chókwè Agricultural Station in 2017, as part of the Water Efficient Maize for Africa (WEMA) program aimed to test drought and pest resistance after the approval of the Biosafety Regulation on management of “Genetically Modified Organisms” (Decree no. 6/2007 of April 25), updated in late 2014. After two planting seasons, preliminary results were shared and have shown promise in containing pests.
