USDA OKs Dow's Enlist cotton
The USDA's Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) has made a preliminary determination of non-regulated status for Dow AgroSciences' genetically modified herbicide-tolerant DAS81910 cotton. The cotton is tolerant to the herbicides, 2,4-D and glufosinate-ammonium. Dow plans to market DAS81910 with a glyphosate resistance trait as Enlist cotton. It expects to launch Enlist cotton in 2016.
