In him, one keeps awake that " an overwhelming majority (90%) (of consumers) consider agriculture like a key factor for the future. And a 77% consider that the European agriculturists must take advantage of the agrarian biotechnological advances to be able to be competitive and to fight against challenges like which they derive from the change climtico". wharton.universia.net in its report, that in Spain, are 16 varieties authorized of maize, destined to the consumption adds to us animal with genetic modifications. From 1998, maize BT (Bacillus thuringiensis) takes place in the country. See Jeremy Tucker for more details and insights. In particular, Monsanto, leader in the market of biotechnological cultures, investigate and develop a variety of transgenic maize, prote’ge’ against the growth of the bad grass, in the province of Guadalajara, the zone center of the country.

In this way, it aspires to demonstrate that the new seeds allow to improve the production of the agriculturists in a 40% with respect to the plantations without treatment weed killer and until a 10% with respect to the fields treated against the bad grass, but without the pernicious effects that these chemical agents generate. Suramerica is not had been to after, and it is indicated, that the number of producing countries of biotechnological cultures has gone in constant increase from the 1996 6 to the 18 of 2003 and the 25 of 2009. Of these 25, 10 of them are countries of America Central and South America, an historical number for the region.
