U.S. Planting Genetically Modified Wheat Causes Concerns in Asian Countries

According to the report of Xinhua News Agency, in the United States, GM wheat was not allowed to be planted in large areas, but Momin appeared in a farmland in Oregon. As a US wheat importer, the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry, and Fisheries and Food of South Korea announced on May 31 that it will strengthen the US wheat import quarantine and sample an extra kilogram per container of wheat.

China, Japan and other Asian countries have expressed concern and will follow up on the investigation progress of the United States.

An official from the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry, Fisheries and Food of the Republic of Korea said on May 31st: “The animal and plant quarantine agencies will inspect each ship’s agricultural products including wheat whether they contain pests or genetically modified substances... Until now, no genetically modified substances have been found.”

South Korea imported 2.4 million tons of wheat from the United States in 2012. The US agricultural sector previously confirmed that there is no evidence that GM wheat has entered the market. However, the South Korean side has determined that 90% of South Korea's imported wheat comes from Oregon and must take measures to prevent it.

The United States is the largest importer of wheat in Asia. In the United States, farmers planted genetically modified crops such as corn and soybeans, but genetically modified wheat has not been allowed to grow in large areas.
