Soybean Slowdown

Chinese GMO Regulations Dampen U.S. Exports

Even before recent disruption of U.S. trade with China through increased tariffs, China had made importing  genetically modified (GMO) soybeans more difficult after a regulatory crackdown last December. The agricultural GMO regulation scheme strengthened the soybean approval process, leading to delays at Chinese ports. Certificates for certain GMO import crops granted by the Chinese Ministry of Agriculture have included cotton, soybeans, corn and rapeseed. The U.S. is looking for alternative GMO markets in case tariffs, restrictions and export slowdowns continue.
