Comments Sought on Crops for Possible Deregulation

USDA’s Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) has posted eight petitions for non-regulated status for GE plants for public review and comment. These include crops from Pioneer, BASF, Monsanto, Dow, Genective and others.

USDA’s Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) has posted eight other petitions for non-regulated status for GE plants for public review and comment. These include glyphosate-tolerant canola (Pioneer), imidazolinone-tolerant soybean (BASF) , glyphosate-tolerant canola (Monsanto), high-yield soybean (Monsanto), hybridization system corn (Monsanto), 2,4-,D, glyphosate and glufosinate-tolerant soybean (Dow), glyphosate-tolerant corn (Genective), and dicambra-tolerant soybean (Monsanto). Meanwhile, APHIS announced its risk assessments for 2.4-D and glufosinate-tolerant soybean (Dow), glyphosate and glufosinate-tolerant soybean (Bayer) and rootworm-resistant corn (Syngenta) indicate these are unlikely to post a plant pest risk to agricultural crops or other plants, and thus the agency is also posting them for public review and comment. Moreover, APHIS announced its determinations that genetically modified oil soybean (Monsanto) and glufosinate-tolerant, bollworm-resistant cotton (Bayer) will no longer be subject to APHIS regulation. Further information on these products and the agency’s determinations are posted online.
