Canada OKs Dow's Enlist E3 soybeans
Dow AgroSciences and M S Technologies have received Canadian approval for their genetically modified multiple herbicide-tolerant Enlist E3 (DAS44406) soybeans. The first ever three-gene soybean stack provides tolerance to the herbicides, 2,4-D, glyphosate and glufosinate-ammonium. The companies plan to launch the technology in 2015, subject to approvals in key export markets. Cultivation approvals are also being sought in the US and Brazil, and other South American countries.
