Argentina OKs GM HerculexI/NK603 maize

Argentina has approved the sale and planting of Dow AgroSciences’ and DuPont seed subsidiary Pioneer Hi-Bred International’s mixed trait herbicide-tolerant and insect-resistant 1507xNK603 (Herculex IxNK603) maize. The seed incorporates Herculex I, LibertyLink and Monsanto’s Roundup Ready2 technologies. Herculex I is tolerant to the herbicide, glufosinate-ammonium, and resistant or partially resistant to the three main maize pests in Argentina: sugar cane borers ( Diatraea saccharalis), fall armyworms ( Spodoptera frugiperda), and “partial control” of corn earworms ( Heliothis zea). Monsanto’s NK603 event gives tolerance to the herbicide, glyphosate.
