  • Call me!
Table of contents
Argentina continues to be the third largest producer of biotech crops after the United States and Brazil, producing 14 percent of the world´s total biotech crops. The revamped regulatory system for agricultural biotechnology launched in 2012 continues to be a successful tool to reduce the approval time for new events. There is a growing misinformation campaign carried out by local anti-biotech groups that are spreading fear and non-scientific facts. These actions were somehow triggered by local environmental groups that opposed to the construction of the new Monsanto’s plant in Cordoba.
