Australasia OKs MON87427 maize

Food Standards Australia New Zealand (FSANZ) has recommended the approval of food products derived from Monsanto’s genetically modified MON87427 maize. It has tissue-selective tolerance to the herbicide, glyphosate, for the production of viable hybrid seed. FSANZ began assessing the application last year ( Agrow No 625, p 39). MON87427 is being reviewed for commercial planting by the US and Canadian authorities ( Agrow No 615, p 22). The FSANZ decision is open to public comment until February 27th.
