Vietnam: Agricultural Biotechnology Annual

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)

In 2017, the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development (MARD) continued its delay in the review and approval of genetically engineered (GE) events for food and feed use, including biotech hybrid corn varieties, with no new approvals since late 2016. MARD is also proposing to ban the use of the herbicide glyphosate following its suspension of this product’s registration over a year ago. Vietnam remains a major importer of key biotech plant products, such as corn, distiller's dried grains with solubles (DDGS) for animal feed production, soybeans for oil crushing, and cotton for the textile industry.
