The head of the American Seed Trade Association (ASTA) says Mexico’s upcoming ban on imports of GMO corn is a violation of the U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA).
Andy LaVigne tells Brownfield the ban isn’t science-based. “It’s going to be really detrimental, not only to U.S. farmers, but the Mexican consumers,” he says. “The cost will go up dramatically. We’re trying to work through it with our government, with their government, our counterparts down there to try to find a solution.
