Genetically modified (GM) soybean DAS 81419-2 which contains two novel insect resistance genes has been given nonregulated status by the Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) of the U.S. Department of Agriculture. Technology developer Dow Agrosciences said the Bt combination provides broad in-plant protection against lepidopteran pests such as (Spodoptera frugiperda), soybean looper (Pseudoplusia includes), velvetbean caterpillar (Anticarsia gemmatalis), soybean podworm (Helicoverpa gelotopoeon) and tobacco budworm (Heliothis virescens) as well as Rachiplusia nu.
