Syngenta said that it has received cultivation approval for its genetically modified corn trait Bt11xGA21 from the Ministry of Agriculture in Argentina.
Bt11xGA21 is a double-stacked corn trait combining insect resistance and herbicide tolerance in a single product. The product will be available to Argentine growers for the 2010/2011 season.
Davor Pisk, Chief Operating Officer Syngenta Seeds, said: "We are pleased to receive this approval, which underlines the ongoing support for modern agricultural technology in Argentina.”
“Syngenta already has a strong position in corn in Argentina and this approval will further strengthen our offer in the country, while bringing growers higher value and more convenience.”
Bt11xGA21 stacked corn is approved for cultivation in the United States, Canada and since November in Brazil.
