Argentina on Friday formally became the first country in the world to approve the use of drought-resistant genetically modified (GMO) wheat.
But the resolution in the official gazette said the seeds cannot be sold before Brazil, Argentina’s main wheat buyer, approves importation of the product.
No countries have yet approved importation of GMO wheat, leaving Argentine farmers with little incentive to plant the new variety, according to Reuters.
