Mozambique: Agricultural Biotechnology Annual

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)   |   MZ2021-0009

Mozambique has not yet approved the use of genetically engineered (GE) crops. Mozambique planted its first GE corn trial in 2017 at the Chókwè Agricultural Station as part of the TELA project (formerly Water Efficient Maize for Africa) aimed to test drought and pest resistance. The trail came after the approval of the Mozambique’s biosafety regulation governing the management of “genetically modified organisms” (Decree no. 6/2007 of April 25), updated in late 2014. After two planting seasons, preliminary results were shared and have shown promise in containing pests.
