Bolivia boosts genetically modified seeds and could triple its grain production

The Government of Bolivia authorized the use of maize, sugar cane, algódon, wheat and soy (sic), genetically modified at its various events, aimed at supplying domestic consumption and external marketing, which would allow to triple in a few years of the current grain production in the country, stagnant in just over 4 million tons (3% of the total Argentine harvest). It expects an economic movement of 2.8 billion dollars, which would be distributed throughout the food production chain, with an important multiplier effect to energize the economy, value the land and generate more than 300 thousand direct and indirect jobs.
