Mexico approves GM Genuity RR Flex cotton
Mexico has authorised the commercial planting of Monsanto’s glyphosate-tolerant Genuity RR Flex (MON88913) cotton. The country’s food quality and health service, the Senasica, authorised the product last month. This is the first commercial approval for Monsanto and it is the only firm that has a commercial phase approval, the company says. Mexico has already approved Monsanto’s twin-trait Bollgard II RR Flex (MON15985xMON88913). That came a year and half ago (Agrow No 631, p 22).
