Syngenta Seeds, Inc., has received import approvals from Japanese and Taiwanese regulatory authorities for its Enogen corn amylase trait (Event 3272), which has demonstrated improved productivity and sustainability in the manufacture of ethanol from corn in tests conducted at ethanol plants. These regulatory approvals allow the importation of grain or co-products like dry distillers grains (DDG) grown from corn hybrids containing the Enogen trait for food or feed use in Japan and Taiwan. In addition, the Enogen trait stacked with Agrisure 3000GT has been approved in Japan.

"As a leader in the development of plant-based solutions, Syngenta is pleased that the Enogen corn trait has been approved by the Japanese and Taiwanese governments," said David Morgan, president of Syngenta Seeds. "We believe our Enogen corn technology will play a vital role in improving ethanol plant productivity and increasing profit potential at a critical time for the ethanol industry."
