The U.S. Department of Agriculture's (USDA) Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) will soon announce in the Federal Register (FR) the availability of a petition from the Monsanto Company seeking to deregulate GM maize MON 87403 for increased ear biomass. 
 
MON 87403 maize can ear biomass at an early reproductive phase (R1) compared to conventional control maize. It will be combined with other deregulated biotechnology-derived traits through traditional breeding methods to create commercial products with increased yield opportunity as well as protection against maize pests and tolerance to multiple herbicides. These next generation combined-trait maize products will continue to offer broader grower choice and continued pest control durability
 
The petition is available for a 60-day public review and comment period beginning January 20, 2015.  Comments received on or before March 23, 2015, will be considered.
