Bayer receives Chinese approval for LL55 soybeans
Bayer CropScience has received Chinese import approval for its genetically modified glufosinate-tolerant LibertyLink LL55 (A5547) soybeans. Bayer submitted the registration application to Chinese authorities in 2007. The LL55 event is “a sister event” to the already commercialised LibertyLink LL27 soybeans. “LL55 will be marketed under the LibertyLink brand name and not as a new product: there will be no distinction made to the customer between LL27 and LL55 soybeans,” the company says.
