Bayer seeks Canadian OK for TwinLink cotton
Bayer CropScience has submitted regulatory applications to the Canadian authorities for its genetically modified insect-resistant and glufosinate-tolerant TwinLink cotton. The company has applied to the Canadian Food Inspection Agency and Health Canada for food and feed clearances, but it is not seeking approval for cultivation of the crop. TwinLink cotton expresses the Bt Cry1Ab and Cry2Ae toxins for the control of various lepidopteran pests. The cotton is being field tested in the US ( Agrow No 556, p 16).
