Notes
CHINA – GM soybean approval: Chinese officials announced the approval of three varieties of genetically modified soybeans for importation. The three pest resistant varieties (CV127, Intacta RR2 Pro and Liberty Link) are of particular interest to Brazil – one of China’s leading soybean suppliers. Based on China’s approval, Brazilian farmers expected to start using the improved seed material for the forthcoming 2013/14 crop.
