MOSCOW, February 8. /TASS/. Russia’s agricultural watchdog will discuss on February 9 the supplies of US corn, a senior official said on Monday.
"Tomorrow we will have phone talks with the American side," said Alexei Alekseyenko said, an aide to the head of the Russian Federal Agency for Veterinarian and Phytosanitary Control.
The sides will discuss ways to prevent supplies of infected corn to Russia and the GMO problem, he said, adding that more than 80% of US-grown corn are genetically modified.
On January 25, the agency said Moscow may introduce a ban on supplies of corn from the US over the systematic Diplodia dry rot infection. Now the infected corn is only used in Russia for the production of popcorn. The potential damage from the supplies of quarantined goods to Russia reaches some 10 or 15 billion rubles ($128 million-$192 million), the analysis of phytosanitary risks shows.
