Syngenta Awaits China’s Approval for Gene-Modified Corn

by swisscham in Engineering, Manufacturing

Switzerland-based Syngenta AG is waiting for China to approve a strain of gene-modified corn present in several U.S. cargoes turned away from Chinese ports in recent months, the company said. Since November, China has rejected about 600,000 metric tons of corn from the United States, the world’s largest exporter, after detecting traces of MIR 162, also known as Agrisure Viptera, which is still awaiting approval from China’s farm ministry. Syngenta has responded to all requests from the Chinese government for information, but has not yet been informed on the progress of its application, the company said in a statement.
