Bayer delays US GlyTol cotton launch

Bayer CropScience has postponed the US launch of its genetically modified glyphosate-tolerant GlyTol cotton until 2011. The decision follows delays in the regulatory process in Japan. The cotton has been granted food-use approval in Japan, but not feed and environmental clearance, the company told Agrow. It had hoped to receive the approvals by the end of 2009 to enable a launch this year. As Japan is a key trading partner for US cotton seed and byproducts, the launch has been delayed, a company spokesman says. Bayer received US approval for GlyTol cotton in 2009 and it had hoped to introduce the technology in two varieties ( Agrow No 569, p 27).
