USDA Reopens Comment Period for Draft Environmental Assessment for Drought Tolerant Corn

Posted Jul 27 2011 3:17am
WASHINGTON, July 27, 2011--The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) has reopened the comment period for a petition received from the Monsanto Company seeking a determination of nonregulated status for corn designated as MON 87460, which has been genetically engineered for drought tolerance. This action will allow interested persons additional time to prepare and submit comments on the Monsanto petition and APHIS’ plant pest risk assessment and draft environmental assessment (EA) for the proposed determination of nonregulated status.
