Comment Period extended for High-oleic acid soybean
Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) has sent out notice that it is extending the comment period for Pioneer Hi-Bred International's high-oleic acid soybean petition for nonregulated status. The original petition that was posted to go with the initial period was found to be the incorrect petition, so the comment period has been extended to December 28, 2009. The comment period is also extended for the Environmental Assessment (EA) and the Plant Pest Risk Assessment. The Federal Register notice from October 26, 2009 is posted here.
