Dow's 2, 4-D Resistant Crops Draft Environmental Impact Statement Meeting
On January 29, 2014, APHIS held a virtual public meeting to receive comments on a draft Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS) for three petitions for nonregulated status. The DEIS analyzes the potential environmental impacts of one corn and two soybean varieties genetically engineered (GE) by Dow AgroSciences, LLC (Dow) to be resistant to the herbicide known as 2,4-D, and several other herbicides.
APHIS developed the DEIS after conducting a thorough scientific analysis and considering public comments received during a scoping process that helped inform the development of the DEIS. APHIS also held two public meetings during the scoping process, on June 26 and 27, 2013.
Transcripts and other materials are posted below.
