Abstract
In South Korea, imported genetically modified (GM) soybean and maize have been approved for both human consumption and use in animal feed, but not for use in cultivation in fields. This study was conducted to survey the spread of GM soybean and maize in South Korea using multiplex-PCR analysis methods. Cultivated soybean, wild soybean, and maize leaf samples were collected from 26 major areas of soybean cultivation throughout eight provinces. Roadside areas near a major grain port in Incheon were also surveyed to investigate the escape and spread of GM seeds and plants. Amplification results showed that no GM soybean or maize was collected from cultivated fields. However, four GM maize plants were found in samples collected from the roadside near a grain transporting company at the Incheon Port. Based on PCR analysis using GM maize event-specific primers, it was suggested that a maize plant may be Mon810, while the other plants may be stacked events: Mon863 × Mon810 or Mon88017 × Mon810.
