New corn varieties to be used in Brazil

The country now has nine GMO corn varieties

Brazil approved two new varieties of genetically modified corn, according to reports, engineered to be pest and glyphosate-based herbicide resistant.

Monsanto and Syngenta developed the products.

A third, insect-resistant variety was also approved, making nine GMO corn varieties approved in Brazil. Approximately 30 percent of Brazil's 2009/2010 summer corn crop will be grown from a genetically modified variety.
