Canada mulls Dow's GM soybeans
The Canadian authorities have confirmed the receipt of an application from Dow AgroSciences to approve its genetically modified herbicide-tolerant DAS-68416-4 soybeans. The company applied to the Canadian Food Inspection Agency and Health Canada for food, feed and environmental release approval for the line. It is tolerant to the herbicides, 2,4-D and glufosinate-ammonium. The Australian authorities recommended the approval of food derived from the soybean line last year ( Agrow No 611, p 24). The Canadian posting is open to public comment until May 6th.
