Responses have been mixed to the news that the South African government has given commodity clearance allowing the import of maize grain from a newly developed herbicide-tolerant genetically modified maize variety.
From now on SA will be allowed to import the grain of the maize variety, DAS-40278-9, developed by Dow AgroSciences (Dow), that is tolerant to the herbicide, 2,4-D (2,4-dichlorophenoxyacetic acid).
This grain will be allowed for use as food and feed in SA.
