Competition From Argentina May See U.S. Farmers Growing GMO Wheat

Competition from Argentina has the potential to bring about a situation where U.S. farmers begin growing GMO wheat.

Growers in Argentina are now growing GMO wheat (Bioceres Crop Solutions' HB4 wheat) for export to Brazil, and in a signal to the world that GMO wheat is gaining ground on a global scale, authorities in New Zealand and Australia also have approved the sale and use of foods made with GMO wheat.

In the U.S.,where no GM wheat has ever been approved for cultivation, a trait already being used in GMO corn has been approved for use in wheat by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). However, this alone does not mean that GMO wheat cultivation is imminent in the U.S. due to possible insufficient export markets as customers in Asia and Europe remain opposed.
