Total planting area for transgenic crops exceeded 1 billion hectares in 2010. Syngenta's E3272 maize line, designed to facilitate biofuel production with a mutant alpha-amylase transgene, was approved in the US earlier this year. Although new approvals and field trials slowed down in the US and Europe, food and feed uses of existing transgenic crops keep expanding in Brazil, the Philippines and Korea.
