Final day to comment on USDA’s coexistence options

Today is the final day to comment on a Federal Register notice regarding agricultural coexistence by the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS). The notice seeks reaction to a coexistence report by the USDA’s Advisory Committee on Biotechnology and 21st Century Agriculture.

The committee made recommendations in five major areas, according to Agri-Pulse.

The agency defines agricultural coexistence as the concurrent cultivation of crops produced via diverse agricultural systems, including traditionally produced, organic, identity preserved (IP) and genetically engineered crops.

After the public comments are reviewed, USDA plans to host a public forum to further discuss the topic.
