Syngenta announced a 6-year-old corn trait finally received approval for import in much of Europe.
The European Commission has announced it will allow imports for the Agrisure Duracade trait, which is a tool for controlling corn rootworm. It has been approved by the USDA for planting since 2013. For the last five years it has been grown in the United States.
The European Commission says corn grain and its products with the trait can now be allowed for food and feed within European Union countries.
