Agency: Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS)
Parent Agency: Department of Agriculture (USDA)
Summary:
The Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service has prepared an environmental impact statement (EIS) on environmental impacts that may result from the potential approval of three petitions from Dow AgroSciences LLC seeking a determination of nonregulated status of herbicide resistant corn and soybeans. Issues addressed in the EIS include the potential environmental impacts associated with the increased use of certain herbicides and possible selection for and spread of weeds resistant to the herbicide 2,4-D combined with resistance to other herbicides (multiple resistance).
