USDA EXTENDS DEREGULATION TO GE CORN MZHG0JG

Date : 9 December 2015

The USDA Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (USDA APHIS) announced the extension of deregulation of herbicide tolerant corn MZHG0JG developed by Syngenta. The same GE trait has been previously reviewed and deregulated in other GE corn plants. Based on environment assessments conducted by APHIS, it was found that the HT corn does not pose risks. The results were posted under public review from October to November 2015. On December 2, 2015, APHIS announced that the determination of nonregulatory status of the HT corn is the "most scientifically sound and appropriate regulatory decision."
