US EPA OKs plum pox virus coat protein

The US EPA has established a tolerance exemption for residues of the plum pox virus (PPV) coat protein in genetically modified PPV-resistant stone fruit and almonds. The request was made by the minor-use IR-4 programme on behalf of the USDA’s Appalachian Fruit Research Station (Kearneysville, West Virginia). It has been field testing PPV-resistant plums in the US since 1995. The USDA deregulated the GM plums in 2007 ( Agrow No 525, p 14).
