Amid trade talks with the U.S. earlier this week, the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs (MOA) announced it had approved the import of two GM products from DowDuPont Inc., DP4114 Qrome corn and DAS-4406-6 soybean (Englist E3), and one GM soybean developed by Bayer Crop Science and Sygenta, now held by German company BASF. The ministry also approved BASF’s RF3 canola and Monsanto’s MON 88302 canola.
