Turkey: Agricultural Biotechnology Annual

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)

Turkey published its Biosafety Law and implementing regulations in 2010. This legislation has continued to disrupt trade and Turkey’s domestic agriculture and food sectors. As of October 31, 2019, there are only 36 (10 soybean and 26 corn) events approved for feed use in Turkey. No events are approved for food use or cultivation. Testing of imported products remains inconsistent and continues to be a considerable cost for importers. Following the move to an Executive Presidency in Turkey in 2018, Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry (MinAF) has become the only authority for biotechnology approvals.
