Argentina's regulatory agencies have authorized the commercial release of a genetically modified (GM) corn from Syngenta. The release of GM corn event SYN-BTO11-1 x SYN-IR162-4 x MON-89034-3 x MON-00021-9 was announced in the Official Union Gazette through Resolution No. 96, signed by the Secretary of Value Added and New Technologies (Agregado de Valor y Nuevas Tecnologías), Néstor Roulet.

The GM corn offers efficient control of sugarcane borer, fall armyworm, and corn earworm. "With the new event, there is now a greater action of insecticide barrier that will increase the sustainability and durability of the technology," according to the Agriculture Ministry.
