- The USDA says it is leaning towards approval of Dow AgroSciences' (DOW) genetically modified Enlist corn and soybeans that have been heavily criticized by groups who say they will harm the environment.
- The Enlist seeds are designed to be used in combination with a new herbicide developed by DOW that combines the weed-killers 2,4-D, known for its use in the Agent Orange defoliant, and glyphosate.
- DOW says the crops and the herbicide combination will help combat an explosion of crop-choking weeds around the U.S. that have become resistant to glyphosate, the chief ingredient in the Roundup herbicide sold by rival Monsanto (MON).
