Genetically modified corn is planned to be grown on large scale throughout the country next year, the Agricultural Genetics Institute has said.

Genetically modified corn is more resistant to insect pests and grass pesticides with crop yields 30-40 percent higher than normal corn.

A trial cultivation of genetically modified corn in northern Vinh Phuc province has so far shown no negative impacts on the environment and biological diversity./.
