NCGA recommends that as you select hybrids you do so with the full knowledge of whether the number is conventional, one approved for EU export or one not yet approved for EU export.

 

APPROVAL STATUS OF BIOTECH CORN HYBRIDS
KNOW BEFORE YOU GROW ®

 

NCGA is firmly committed to the principle that U.S.-grown biotech hybrids yet to be approved in major export markets should not be placed into export channels. Because not all hybrids are approved for all export market uses, especially in the European Union (EU), corn growers should select hybrids with the full knowledge of whether they are conventional, fully approved for EU export, or not yet fully approved for EU export. Growers should read their grower agreements before planting and communicate with their grain buyers.

 

This is why NCGA works with technology providers to publicize regular updates on the approval status of these events. Regardless of export status, there is an ample market for U.S. biotech corn – approximately 42 percent of all U.S.-grown corn is fed to domestic livestock.

 

In 2005, the EU announced that a number of hybrids had been approved for use in production of processed feeds (corn gluten feed and DDGS). However, hybrids remain available in the U.S. market that cannot be used by domestic processors for production of processed feeds and food exported to the EU. Growers planting one of those hybrids awaiting full EU approval must talk with their grain handler before harvest and delivery.

 

* This list is representative of available products but may not include all corn biotechnology hybrids currently available.

 

PLEASE NOTE: The Know Before You Grow database is generated by distributing surveys to seed companies throughout the country. Its accuracy relies on accurate reporting from the companies that return these surveys. While NCGA strives to make the information as comprehensive and factual as possible, it is absolutely necessary that growers work with seed distributors and grain buyers to verify that the seed they purchase is appropriate for the market that they wish to serve.

 

For more information contact your local seed company representative.

 

KNOW WHERE TO GO

 

NCGA urges you to funnel hybrids not fully approved for EU export into one of three markets. Those markets are: (1) your own livestock rations, (2) domestic livestock feeding channels or (3) elevators accepting grain not yet fully approved for EU export. Visit the American Seed Trade Association Web site for more information about the policies of grain facilities accepting hybrids not yet approved for export to the EU.
