Brazil ratifies Dow/DuPont’s Herculex I maize approval

Dow AgroSciences and DuPont subsidiary Pioneer Hi-Bred International have been granted full approval in Brazil for the commercial planting of their genetically modified insect-resistant and glufosinate-tolerant Herculex I maize. The 11-Ministry strong national biosafety council, the CNBS, ratified the approval earlier this month. The GM line was provisionally approved in December 2008 at the final meeting of the year of the national technical commission for biosafety, the CTNBio ( Agrow No 558, p 20).
