European Commission authorizes Enlist corn

The European Union joins a lengthy list of countries that have approved Enlist corn for import, including China. The Commission noted in its statement the traits it recently approved “had gone through a full authorization procedure, including a favourable scientific assessment by the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA).”

Dow AgroSciences reaffirms its plans to launch Enlist corn in Canada for the 2018 growing season. The Enlist system in corn will help farmers control weeds more efficiently by enabling the use of Enlist Duo herbicide. Enlist Duo addresses hard to control and resistant weeds while minimizing the potential for off-target movement through its Colex-D technology.
