USDA to clear Monsanto's Xtend crops

The USDA's Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) proposes to deregulate Monsanto's genetically modified herbicide-tolerant MON87708 soybeans and MON88701 cotton. The APHIS considers that the crops do not pose a plant pest risk and is issuing a draft environmental impact statement (EIS) recommending approval. The APHIS decided to prepare an EIS on the crops last year, prompting industry concern about delays to commercialisation (Agrow No 664, p 14).
