The European Commission has granted import licenses for two biotech corn products.  They are from Monsanto and include a glyphosate tolerant corn MON 87427 and a maize hybrid NK603 × T25.  South Dakota Corn Grower’s President Keith Alverson is encouraged by the approval and says it bodes well for future biotech approvals in Europe.  He says the E.U. has been a difficult area to get biotech approved and this recent step is a breakthrough of sorts.
 
Alverson says this recent biotech approval should help U.S. negotiators as they work out the T-TIP trade deal with the European Union as this is a key trade issue.
 
Both of the Monsanto corn products have already received positive safety assessments by the EU Food Safety Authority.
