Costa Rica may be changing stance on modified crops

Monday, December 10, 2012


Although transgenic soybeans, cotton and some corn has been grown in Costa Rica since 1991, groups that oppose genetically modified crops are increasing pressure on the government to slow the permit process for future GM crops.

The Delta and Pine Corporation has submitted an application to the National Bio-safety Commission to plant GM corn for exporting the seeds. Delta and Pine Corporation is a subsidiary of Monsanto.

In the past few weeks, opposition groups have expressed that they do not want GM corn for seed to be planted.
