WASHINGTON, April 21, 2014—USDA’s Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) announced today a determination of nonregulated status for Dow AgroSciences’s soybean genetically engineered (GE) for insect resistance.


The GE soybean variety also contains a gene that makes it tolerant to the herbicide glufosinate. USDA provided a finding of no significant impact.


A copy of the Dow petition, determination, and supporting documents can be found on the News and Information page of the BRS website.
