APHIS Issues Regulatory Status Review Responses

  • Inari Agriculture, Inc., modified corn for higher yield.
  • Greenlab, Inc., modified corn to produce a protein sweetener called brazzein in seeds and for herbicide resistance. 

APHIS found these modified plants were unlikely to pose an increased plant pest risk compared to other cultivated plants. As a result, they are not subject to regulation under 7 CFR part 340. From a plant pest risk perspective, these modified plants may be safely grown and bred in the United States.
