Portugal: Agricultural Biotechnology Annual

While it is still the second largest grower of genetically engineered (GE) corn in Europe, Portugal’s area planted to genetically engineered corn continues to decline. The reduction in the country’s total corn area, along with the increased demand of GE-free corn by the food industry has decreased the GE corn area. Since 2015, Portugal has been less consistent in following EFSA’s advice in the EU approval process for GE events.
