South Korea OKs GM soybean imports

South Korea has granted import approvals to two genetically modified herbicide-tolerant soybean lines, Monsanto’s Roundup Ready 2 Yield soybeans (MON 89788) and Bayer CropScience’s LibertyLink soybeans (A2704-12). The approvals “pave the way” for commercialisation in the US, reports the American Soybean Association (ASA). “These approvals are critical to US soybean growers and our soybean and soybean product customers in South Korea,” says ASA president Johnny Dodson. The ASA has “worked closely” with the South Korean industry for approval of the soybean traits. LibertyLink and Roundup Ready 2 Yield soybeans are approved for cultivation in the US and have received import approvals in the EU and other key export markets ( Agrow passim).
