Mexico and Philippines OK Viptera maize imports

Mexico and the Philippines have authorised the import of two of Syngenta’s genetically modified maize products. The stacked trait Agrisure Viptera 3111 combines the company’s insect-resistant Agrisure Viptera (MIR162) with insect-resistant and herbicide-tolerant Agrisure 3000GT. It produces the Bt Vip3A, Cry1Ab and mCry3A toxins for the control of above- and below-ground pests. The approval follows that of Japan in June, which cleared the way for a US launch ( Agrow No594, p 27). Syngenta has also received import approvals from both countries for the stacked trait Agrisure Viptera 3110, which combines Agrisure Viptera with herbicide-tolerant Agrisure GT/CB/LL. It produces the Vip3A and Cry1Ab toxins. Both lines are tolerant to the herbicides, glyphosate and glufosinate-ammonium.
