The scientific regulation agencies of the Argentinian government have approved for commercialization a genetically-modified corn from Syngenta. The corn is coded  SYN-BTO11-1 x SYN-IR162-4 x MON-89034-3 x MON-00021-9. The release was published in the Official Union Gazette this month, through Resolution No. 96.
 
Use of the GMO offers more efficient control of three diseases that harm corn crops: the sugar cane borer (Diatraea saccharalis), the Fall Armyworm (Spodoptera frugiperda) and the corn earworm ( Heliothis zea).
 
“With this new product, we add a greater barrier of insecticide action that will allow us to increase sustainability and durability of the technology,” said Argentina’s Agriculture Ministry. The country currently has 38 biotechnological products available, with four approved this year, three of them being corn.
