USDA FAS-GAIN Reports Agri-biotech Updates in Mozambique

The USDA FAS Global Agricultural Information Network (GAIN) released updates on the status of agricultural biotechnology in Mozambique.

According to the report, Mozambique has planted the first field trial of biotech corn in the Chókwè District of Gaza Province in February 2017. The field trial is part of the Water Efficient Maize for Africa (WEMA) program. Results of the field trial are expected to be released in 2018. This is the first biotech crop field trial after the biosafety regulation of the country was updated in late 2014.
