Will Brazil's ban on transgenic crops remain in place?

(April 25, 2001 -- Cropchoice news) -- Consumer and environmental groups have used the courts to hold off the Brazilian government's plans to legalize the cultivation of transgenic soy. European markets count on Brazil for a steady supply of non-transgenic soy and corn.
