Honduras: Agricultural Biotechnology Annual

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)   |   HO2021-0007

No changes to the regulatory framework or new crop event approvals were reported during 2021, a consequence of the COVID pandemic. For the same reason, the approval of the Procedural Manual for the implementation of the law for the Protection of New Varieties of Plants (UPOV) has been delayed until at least the end of 2021. Three field testing applications for GE bananas were submitted early this year to the National Committee on Biotechnology and Biosecurity (NCBB), but so far have not been resolved. As of September 2021, Honduras had more than 38,000 hectares of GE corn production, similar to 2020.
