Small Change, Big Impact: Mexico will no longer allow tortillas made from biotech corn

As the U.S. continues its dispute with Mexico over biotech corn, there are recent small changes that could have a big impact if the ban becomes a reality.

Mexico says that they will no longer allow tortillas to be made with biotech corn.

Collin Waters with Illinois Corn tells Brownfield Ag News the change is just another reminder of how serious Mexico is about the ban. He says that could cause a disruption of corn in the country, but he is also concerned about the continuous rule changes.

He says they could just further complicate the dispute but he is hopeful the settlement process will finish quickly and in the U.S.'s favor.
