Brazils biosecurity regulator, CTNBio, approved two new varieties of genetically modified corn on Thursday, both of which have been engineered to resist pests and glyphosate -based herbicide.

The seeds were developed by the worlds largest seed company, Monsanto and the worlds largest agrochemicals company, Syngenta.

A third variety developed by Syngenta, with insect resistant properties only, was also approved, bringing to nine the total number of GMO corn varieties approved for use in Brazil.

According to agricultural consultants Celeres, about 30 percent of the seed planted for Brazils 2009/10 summer corn crop will be one of these genetically modified kinds.
