The U.S. Department of Agriculture has granted deregulated status for Dow AgroSciences LLC's WideStrike Insect Protection cotton. WideStrike is the company's first cotton insect protection trait. "Deregulation by United States Depatment of Agriculture is considered the first step toward full U.S. regulatory approval for WideStrike," says Joe Sobek, global cotton leader for Dow AgroSciences. A pre-market consultation with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration is pending and registration of the trait by the Environmental Protection Agency is anticipated later this year. Extensive field trials show season-long protection from a broad spectrum of lepidopteran pests such as cotton bollworm, tobacco budworm, pink bollworm, beet armyworm. fall armyworm, southem armyworm, cabbage loopers and soybean loopers.
