Australasia approves MON87705 soybeans
Food Standards Australia New Zealand (FSANZ) has confirmed the approval of food derived from Monsanto’s genetically modified MON87705 soybeans. The soybeans are tolerant to the herbicide, glyphosate, and have been modified to produce higher amounts of oleic acid and lower amounts of linoleic and certain saturated fats. They are to be marketed as Vistive Gold. FSANZ proposed the approval earlier this year ( Agrow No 611, p 24).
