Yield10 Bioscience, Inc. (OTC:YTEN) (″Yield10″ or the ″Company″), an agricultural bioscience company, announced that UPL Ltd. (″UPL″) has received U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (″EPA″) approval to amend the label language of INTERLINE® Herbicide to include the oilseed Camelina sativa (″Camelina″). This approval allows Yield10’s glufosinate-tolerant Camelina to be sprayed with INTERLINE®, a glufosinate containing herbicide, providing farmers with a much-needed method to control broad leaf weeds during Camelina field production. INTERLINE is marketed and sold by UPL, a global provider of sustainable agricultural solutions.

Camelina, a member of the Brassicaceae plant family, is available in both spring and cold-tolerant winter varieties. Use of the Camelina crop is currently ramping up commercially in North America as a potential source of feedstock oil for the biofuel industry. Yield10 is also progressing commercial development of Camelina as a potential platform crop for producing new seed products including engineered omega-3 oils for use in human nutrition, animal feed and aquaculture.

″We appreciate the efforts of the UPL team to add Camelina to the INTERLINE herbicide label,″ said Kristi Snell, Ph.D., Chief Science Officer and Vice President of Research of Yield10. ″Having methods to control broad-leaf weeds is essential to enabling the large-scale adoption of Camelina as a commercial crop in North America. Yield10 has engineered both spring and winter varieties of Camelina for glufosinate tolerance. We anticipate that INTERLINE will give Camelina farmers access to a widely used herbicide solution that supports farm profitability and crop health.″

Yield10 is a leader in the development of Camelina, including glufosinate-tolerant varieties. USDA-APHIS’s Biotechnology Regulatory Services (″BRS″) determined in November 2023 that Yield10’s glufosinate tolerant Camelina is not subject to regulation under 7 CFR part 340 regulations after the Company submitted a Regulatory Status Review Request (″RSR″) under the SECURE Rule. This ruling allows Yield10’s glufosinate tolerant varieties to be grown and bred in the United States. The recent EPA label amendment allows growers to spray INTERLINE on glufosinate tolerant Camelina varieties in the US under state registrations.
