China has been very slow in approving the imports of crops with biotech traits. Five traits are being approved, including Enlist E3 soybeans. That will allow full commercialization of the Enlist technology. This trait was developed by Dow AgroSciences and MS Technologies and is now owned by Corteva Agriscience. The trait will be licensed to other seed companies and will have soybean varieties available across all maturities. The other new Chinese approvals are for MGI soybeans developed by Syngenta and Bayer; Qrome stacked corn from Corteva; Invigor Canola from BASF and TruFlex Roundup Ready Canola from Bayer.
