Prohibition of the use of transgenic corn for human consumption
Feb 17, 2023
The Decree establishing several actions regarding glyphosate and genetically modified corn was published in the Official Gazette of the Federation. The Decree revokes and no longer authorizes the use of genetically modified corn for human consumption, as well as the use of glyphosate, a herbicide widely used in the field.
This Decree replaces one of December 2020 and its objective, the Ministry of Economy (SE) subsequently detailed in a press release, is to specify the objective and scope of public policies, as well as to "eliminate any possible imprecision of the predecessor text, which lent itself to diverse interpretations".
