Brazil CTNBio OKs Monsanto GM soybeans

Brazil has provisionally approved the sale and use of the first Monsanto genetically modified soybeans developed specifically for use in a market outside the US. The national technical biosafety commission, the CTNBio, approved the company’s insect-resistant and glyphosate-tolerant Bt Roundup Ready 2 Yield (MON87701xMON 89788) soybeans at its August meeting. Roundup Ready 2 Yield soybeans are already on sale in the US, but the insect-resistant version was developed specifically for the Brazilian market. Monsanto applied for the registration in July last year ( Agrow No 571, p 23).
