Mexico: Mexico Proposes Ban on GE Corn and Glyphosate

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)

On December 9, a draft decree was released on Mexico’s National Commission for Regulatory Improvement (CONAMER) website that calls for a phase-out of use of both glyphosate and genetically modified (GE) corn for human consumption in Mexico. The proposed decree states that use of the herbicide glyphosate will be phased out over the next four years, although glyphosate will not be used in any government-sponsored program during that transition period. The draft also includes an article that seemingly requires the revocation of existing and future permits for both the cultivation of GE corn and the use of GE corn for human consumption. The use of GE corn in human consumption would be phased out no later than January 31, 2024.
