Brazil CTNBio OKs Bollgard II RR Flex

Brazil has provisionally approved Monsanto’s herbicide-tolerant and insect-resistant Bollgard II Roundup Ready Flex (MON15985xMON88913) cotton. The national technical commission for biosafety, the CTNBio, recommended the commercial authorisation of the product at its August meeting. It voted 16 to five for approval with one abstention. Bollgard II Roundup Ready Flex provides tolerance to glyphosate herbicide, and protects the crop against lepidopteran pests such as cotton leafworms ( Alabama argillacea), tobacco budworms ( Heliothis virescens), pink bollworms ( Pectinophora gossypiella) and fall armyworms ( Spodoptera frugiperda).
