Mycogen Seeds announces that its grain corn hybrids with the trait combination of Herculex® I Insect Protection and Roundup Ready® have received regulatory approvals for grain import into Japan and Mexico.

Mycogen Seeds currently has one hybrid available containing Herculex I combined with the Roundup Ready trait, which is available for the 2005 growing season.

Additional insect protection traits are being developed for other corn pests, and pending appropriate regulatory approvals, Mycogen Seeds will have hybrids available with Herculex RW Rootworm Protection for the 2006 planting season and Herculex XTRA Insect Protection soon after.
