FSANZ assesses Dow's Enlist soybeans
Food Standards Australia New Zealand (FSANZ) has begun reviewing an application from Dow AgroSciences and M S Technologies for genetically modified DAS-44406-6 soybeans with tolerance to the herbicides, 2,4-D, glyphosate and glufosinate-ammonium, which make up the Enlist system. Dow applied for USDA deregulation of the soybeans last year ( Agrow No 622, p 27). FSANZ recommended approval of 2,4-D- and glufosinate-tolerant DAS-68416-4 soybeans in 2011 ( Agrow No 611, p 24). It expects to complete its latest assessment by February 2013.
