Brazil`s CTNBio Approves New GM Soybean
Tuesday, 2017/08/22 | 07:47:53

During their August plenary meeting, the National Technical Biosafety Commission (CTNBio) of Brazil has approved a new variety of Bt soybean for planting, human consumption, and animal consumption. In addition to insect resistance, the genetically modified (GM) soybean has tolerance to three herbicides: glyphosate, glufosinate, and dichlorophenoxyacetic acid (2,4-D).


The GM soybean was obtained by crossing the events DAS-81419-2 and DAS-44406-6, and contains two genes for insect resistance (cry1Ac and cry1F) and three for herbicide tolerance (aad-12, 2mepsps and pat).


The technology belongs to Dow AgroSciences, named as Conkesta Enlist E3™, and the first product released by CTNBio that has genes for insect resistance and herbicide tolerance in a single event. Dow AgroSciences is now working on the registration with Brazil's Ministry of Agriculture. The same event has already been released in Argentina in 2016.
