China Approves Drought Gard Corn

China, has granted regulatory approval for Monsanto’s Genuity DroughtGard Hybrids.  Lisa Safarian, U.S. Row Crops Lead for Monsanto says China is a major buyer of U.S. corn grain and dried distillers grain solubles so the import approval of this trait is great news for U.S. farmers.

She says this also represents a significant step forward for future technology approvals in China.

Last year farmers who grew the corn in the western corn belt signed a stewardship agreement to use the grain as on-farm feed or to sell it for domestic use, due to pending import approvals in key export markets. With the approval in China, Monsanto will remove those requirements.
