Vietnam: Agricultural Biotechnology Annual

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)

The Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development (MARD) issued Certificates of Food and Feed Safety Approvals for ten genetically engineered (GE) events for corn, soybeans, and alfalfa in 2018-2019. However, MARD continues to delay the approval of biotech corn varieties for commercialization. In April 2019, MARD removed glyphosate from the list of pesticides approved for use in Vietnam and gave only a one-year grace period for domestic use. Vietnam remains a major importer of key biotech plant products, such as soybeans, distiller's dried grains with solubles (DDGS), corn, and cotton.

El Salvador: Coffee Annual

El Salvador’s coffee production is expected to reach 639,000 sixty-kg bags in marketing year (MY) 2021/22. The Salvadoran coffee sector continues to struggle mainly due to low international prices, climate change, continued coffee leaf rust, and a lack of a long-term strategy that has hindered investment at the farm level. The MY2022/23 crop is forecast to slightly decrease to 619,000 sixty-kg bags.
