Brazil CTNBio OKs two GM maize lines

Brazil has provisionally authorised two genetically modified stacked-trait maize lines. The national technical commission for biosafety, the CTNBio, granted the green light to Monsanto’s insect-resistant and glyphosate-tolerant Genuity YieldGard II with Roundup Ready 2 (MON89034xNK603, and Syngenta’s insect-resistant and herbicide-tolerant Bt11xMIR162xGA21 maize. Both applications were approved by 17 of 20 commission members. The latter is the first triple-stacked maize trait to be approved by the commission.
