Description
 
The number of approved applications to field test genetically engineered (GE) crops in the U.S. has increased significantly since 1986, when the USDA began regulating experimental GE plants. Since then, the USDA has approved 10,600 appl’s. for more than 49,300 field sites. USDA must ensure that regulated GE plants, including their pollen & seeds, do not persist in the environment. This report evaluates the Animal & Plant Health Inspect. Serv. (APHIS) controls over releases & movements of regulated GE plants. 91 field test sites in 22 states were inspected for compliance. It was found that APHIS, the agency that oversees biotech. regulatory functions for the USDA, needs to strengthen its accountability for field tests of GE crops. Illus.
