DuPont, Monsanto urge transparent GMO crop reviews in China

DuPont, Monsanto urge transparent GMO crop reviews in ChinaBy Dominique Patton BEIJING (Reuters) – Global seeds giants have called for transparent, science-based approvals processes for new crop types after China approved two more genetically modified (GMO) crops for import, but left four others on the waiting list. China on Monday approved Syngenta’s 5307 insect-resistant corn sold under the Agrisure Duracade brand and Monsanto’s 87427 glyphosate-resistant corn, sold under the Roundup Ready brand, for a period of three years. The move was the second in the past month to expand access to biotech seeds as part of Beijing’s 100-day trade talks with Washington, and took total approvals to four after Dow Chemical Co’s Enlist corn and Monsanto’s Vistive Gold soybeans were given the go-ahead last month.
