EIS soon on Glyphosate

Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service’s (APHIS) Biotechnology Regulatory Services (BRS) of the USA announces an  intent to prepare an environmental impact statement (EIS) to evaluate the environmental impacts that may result from the approval of a petition for deregulation of a creeping bentgrass genetically engineered for glyphosate resistance.                

The public is  requested to  review ‘our Notice of Intent (NOI) and provide comment to help us identify potential issues and impacts that APHIS should consider in our evaluation of the petition from Scotts Company and Monsanto Company. The NOI will be published in the Federal Register in the coming days’.

APHIS will consider all public input submitted during the 30-day comment period on the NOI and use the information as we work to complete, and then publish, the draft EIS
