The Chinese Ministry of Agriculture has granted import approval for Syngenta's Agrisure Duracade® trait. The approval covers corn grain and processing co-products, including dried distillers grains (DDGs), for food and feed use.
The Agrisure Duracade trait has completed the Food and Drug Administration consultation process, received registration from the Environmental Protection Agency and has been fully deregulated by the USDA since 2013.
Erik Fyrwald, Syngenta CEO said, "Obtaining this regulatory approval opens up new opportunities for our corn seed portfolio. Growers can expect more choices and exciting new hybrids that offer elite genetics plus the latest in corn rootworm control technology."
