USDA to clear Optimum GAT

The USDA's Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) has proposed the deregulation of DuPont/Pioneer Hi-Bred International's dual herbicide-tolerant Optimum GAT (356043) soybeans. The soybeans express modified glyphosate acetyltransferase (GAT 4601) and acetolactate synthase (ALS) proteins, which confer tolerance to glyphosate and ALS-inhibiting herbicides, such as sulfonylureas. Pioneer plans to launch Optimum GAT soybeans in 2009 and Optimum GAT maize in 2010 (Agrow No 522, p 4).
