Since November, China has rejected more than a million metric tons of U.S. corn, citing the use of a certain trait of a genetically-modified corn seed the country has not approved for import. The National Grain and Feed Association says the rejected corn is costing almost $3 billion in economic losses for the U.S. agricultural industry. But as VOA's Kane Farabaugh reports, despite the controversy over so-called GMO corn, it is not hurting current demand, or price.
