Argentina becomes the first country to approve genetically modified Wheat

The scientific commission of Argentina's agriculture ministry had approved a drought-resistant variety of Wheat in the world's fourth-largest exporter of the crop. Argentina has become the first country to ratify the growth and consumption of genetically modified Wheat.  CONICET said the genetic modifications to Argentina's wheat crop would have to be approved in Brazil, historically the country's biggest export market, commercially viable. Some 45% of Argentina's wheat exports in 2019 went to Brazil. Other key markets are Indonesia, Chile, and Kenya.
