WASHINGTON — USDA’s Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service is soliciting public input on a petition submitted by Bayer U.S.-Crop Science to deregulate a corn cultivar developed using genetic engineering.

The cultivar is designated as MON95379. It was modified to resist feeding damage caused by target lepidopteran pests, including fall armyworm (Spodoptera frugiperda), sugarcane borer (diatraea saccharalis), and corn earworm (Helicoverpa zea). The input received during the public comment period will help identify issues and potential impacts that should be considered in review and determine the appropriate environmental documents to prepare to document a decision, USDA noted.
