The science and politics of genetically-modified plants in Latin America


The science and politics of genetically-modified plants in Latin America



Phytopathology 91(6 Suppl): S168



ISSN/ISBN: 0031-949X

Both public institutions and private companies are developing genetically modified plants for the agricultural systems in Latin America. In many countries, technology has advanced more rapidly than the policies for the regulation of transgenic plants. There are technical issues such as gene flow to native plants and the safety of consuming transgenic plants, and each individual country is obligated to develop a national policy for the testing and release of genetically modified plants. Also, there are groups that are opposed to the use of any genetically modified organism. This makes the regulation both a scientific and political process. This process is further complicated by the lack of infrastructure, training and information for those developing and implementing the regulations, as well as the issue of intellectual property rights. Some key areas of research, the current state of regulations, and the need for accurate public information on genetically modified plants in Latin America will be briefly reviewed.
