Genetically Modified Crops in China 2013 Edition (2)

China, with a plenty of field and great demand for crops, has the great potential in GM crops. Stimulated by the approval of safety certificates of GM rice and GM corn, two key grain crops in Asia, GM technology and GM crops have attracted unprecedented attention in the world.

By interviewing researchers, governmental officers and citizens, CCM tries to study and introduce the situation of five main GM crops (GM rice, GM cotton, GM corn, GM wheat and GM soybean) in China, finding out whether GM crops will come into commercial production in the near future and what the future for Chinese GM crops industry is.

To figure out the future trend of GM crops in China, especially for GM rice, CCM will carry out a deep investigation in this research in order to:

  • Help clients understand Chinese GM crops industry
  • Find out influencing factors for GM crops development
  • Analyze the competitive landscape of Chinese and multinational GM crops producers
  • Assess market risks and identify business opportunities
  • Find out GM crop prospect
