Canada posts Dow's Enlist soybean submission

The Canadian authorities have notified receipt of an application from Dow AgroSciences for commercialisation of its genetically modified herbicide-tolerant DAS44406-6 soybean line. The company applied to the Canadian Food Inspection Agency and Health Canada for food, feed and unconfined environmental release of the line. It is tolerant to the herbicides, 2,4-D, glyphosate and glufosinate-ammonium. Dow has also applied for USDA deregulation of the line ( Agrow No 622, p 27). The company plans to introduce the soybeans under the Enlist brand in 2015, subject to regulatory approvals. The Canadian submission is open to public comment until January 3rd 2012.
