The U.S. Department of Agriculture's (USDA) Animal and Plant Health
Inspection Service (APHIS) has released their review of four plants modified
using genetic engineering to determine whether they posed an increased plant
pest risk as relative to non-modified comparators.

APHIS found that these modified plants were unlikely to pose an increased
plant pest risk compared to other cultivated plants and were not subject to
regulation under 7 CFR part 340 and may be safely grown and bred in the
United States.

The four modified plants are the following:

* sugar beet with herbicide resistance developed by Bayer Crop

* pennycress with reduced glucosinolates, erucic acid, fiber, and
poly-unsaturated fatty acid content in seed, increased oleic acid content in
seed, and reduced seed shattering developed by CoverCress;

* pennycress with reduced glucosinolates, erucic acid, and fiber in
seeds from Hjelle Advisors for CoverCress; and

* soybeans with meat protein in seeds and antibiotic resistance
developed by Moolec Science.
