A third of the seeds grown in Bolivia come from the illegal market

Bolivia is flooded with unauthorized illegal transgenic seeds that enter from Argentina, via smuggling, and are sold in the informal market, according to the National Institute for Agricultural and Forestry Innovation (Iniaf). Marín Condori, national director of Iniaf, estimates that 70% of the agricultural fields in Santa Cruz use certified seed and that the remaining 30% (between 300,000 and 400,000 hectares) use genetic material from the informal and illegal market.
