Dow Asking USDA To De Regulate Enlist Seeds

Dow Asking USDA To De Regulate Enlist Seeds

USDA is looking at full deregulation of Dow’s Enlist Seeds, which would be the first corn and soybeans developed with 2,4-D Resistance.  Dow Marketing Manager Damon Palmer says the products have been under USDA review since 2009 and will provide an alternative for herbicide-resistant and hard-to-control-weeds.

He says USDA has release a draft Environmental Impact Statement and it will be open for public comment for 45 days once it is published in the Federal Register this week and they encourage farmers to participate. 

The EPA is also reviewing the safety of Dow’s Enlist 2,4-D herbicide and will release a decision in the next few months.  If approved the system would be on the market in 2015. 

Groups like the Center for Food Safety are asking the Obama Administration to overturn the proposal.
