Producer Admits Illicit Sale of Genetically Modified Corn Seeds
A Shenzhen-listed company has admitted illicitly selling genetically modified (GM) corn seeds that were subsequently planted on hundreds of acres of land in northwest China earlier this year — the latest GM crop scandal to hit the world’s most-populous country.
Shandong Denghai Seeds Co., Ltd said on Tuesday that its subsidiary in Yili prefecture in the Xinjiang autonomous region sold GM seeds to a local corn farmer who planted them over more than 420 acres of farmland in Gongliu county in Yili.
