Background On June 29, 2006, EPA approved Monsanto’s application for an EUP for the testing of MON 89034 x MON 88017 combined insecticidal trait corn as well as MON 89034 and MON 88017 individually (524–EUP–97). This permit allows planting through June 20, 2008. MON 89034 contains the lepidopteran protecting Bacillus thuringiensis Cry1A.105 protein and the genetic material necessary (vector PV– ZMIR245) for its production in MON 89034 corn and Bacillus thuringiensis Cry2Ab2 protein and the genetic material necessary (vector PV– ZMIR245) for its production in MON 89034 corn. MON 88017 contains the corn rootworm protecting Bacillus thuringiensis Cry3Bb1 protein and the genetic material necessary (vector PV– ZMIR39) for its production in MON 88017 corn. Monsanto proposes amending the EUP to allow the treatment of 11,952 acres in total. This includes a maximum of 4,421 acres for MON 89034 x MON 88017, 3,687 acres of MON 89034, 1,742 acres of MON 88017, 415 acres of corn containing registered plant-incorporated protectants (PIPS) and 1,687 acres of non-PIP and border rows. The proposed period of use of this amended EUP is February 15, 2008–June 15, 2009. Eight trial protocols are proposed to be conducted including: • Breeding and observation nursery. • Inbred seed increase and sample hybrid production. • Line per se hybrid yield and herbicide tolerance trials. • Insect efficacy trials. • Product characterization and performance trials. VerDate Aug<31>2005 21:40 Dec 18, 2007 Jkt 214001 • Insect resistance management trials. • Benefit trials. • Seed treatment trials.
