Brazil OKs Bayer’s Glytol TwinLink cotton

Brazil has provisionally approved Bayer CropScience’s genetically modified insect-resistant and herbicide-tolerant Glytol TwinLink (GHB614xT304xGHB119) cotton. The national technical commission for biosafety, the CTNBio, gave clearance for the GM cotton at its May meeting by 16 votes to three. Commission president Flavio Finardi noted that the cotton had “no new modification, but simply a stacking of two already approved varieties”. If ratified by the government’s 11-Ministry council, the CNBS, it would become the first approval anywhere for the stacked event. Bayer received approval from the CTNBio for TwinLink cotton last year, and GlyTol in 2010 ( Agrow No 610, p 21).
