Dow AgroSciences and Monsanto have received import regulatory approval from Mexico for corn grain produced from SmartStax. This approval marks a significant regulatory milestone for full commercial launch of corn hybrids with SmartStax.

The Mexican government also gave full regulatory authorization for importation of grain from two other Monsanto Company corn traits: Genuity VT Triple PRO and Genuity VT Double PRO.

Monsanto says the approvals by Mexico for SmartStax and VT Triple PRO are the final major global regulatory import approvals necessary to enable U.S. and Canadian farmers who plant these corn trait technologies to fully market their grain in 2010.
