Monsanto and Pioneer aim to introduce genetically modified crops to Honduras before moving on to El Salvador and Guatemala.
"Once a regulatory framework has been established, we have to see what the conditions are, in terms of yields and acreage," said Rafael Aramendis, Monsanto's regional director for government relations. "But first it will be Honduras, then El Salvador and in third place Guatemala, as each in turn defines the rules of the game."
As part of the Agritrade Platform, Guatemala will participate for the 27th time in PMA Fresh Summit, the most important international trade show and convention of fruits and vegetables in the United States, which will take place at Anaheim Convention Center, California from October 17th to 19th.
