China Approves New GMO Crops As Officials Meet In Attempt To Resolve Trade Dispute

Published on 8 Jan 2019, 18:05
According to a report by Reuters, on Tuesday, China approved five genetically modified crops for import, as representatives from the Asian country and the United States met in face-to-face talks to try to resolve trade disagreements. Reuters reports that some, including two canola varieties, have been waiting for approval for six years. U.S. farmers are reportedly not planting soybean seeds in large quantities unless they are first approved by China, which until the trade war began imported 60 percent of U.S. soybeans.
