EU Approves YieldGard® Rootworm

MonsantoSt. Louis, MO, (February 2, 2006 – AgNewsWire)– The European Union’s (EU) recent decision to approve YieldGard® Rootworm Corn for food ingredients has paved the way for YieldGard Rootworm to be used in human foods in Europe.

Monsanto Business Manager for Biotech Grain Phoong Tang says this is great news for all segments of the corn industry.

“This approval is expected to open doors into European markets that had previously not accepted YieldGard Rootworm and should therefore increase the number of places where growers can sell their single-trait YieldGard Rootworm grain.” (Full Release)
