More Herbicide Resistant Crop Technology Anticipated

Bayer Crop Science has announced the successful deregulation of Balance GT soybean (Event FG72). Bayer received notice from the Ministry of Agriculture in China that Balance GT Soybean was approved for import. This approval marked the final required global event approval to launch Balance™GT soybean in the United States. BalanceGT is owned by MS Technologies and is being co-developed through a joint development agreement between MS Technologies and Bayer. Bayer and MS Technologies have been collaborating since 2007 with new herbicide tolerance technologies for soybeans. The full Balance system launch is planned for 2018, pending the EPA commercial label registration of Balance Bean anticipated in 2017. In summary, the technology is fully approved for export, however Balance Bean label approval through EPA has yet be completed.
