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.
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.
