Monsanto's drought-resistant corn has been approved by the US for sale, reports Reuters. The genetically engineered corn was developed in conjunction with German company BASF. The corn, called MON 87460, "is no longer considered a regulated article under our regulations governing the introduction of certain genetically engineered organisms," according to a USDA announcement. Monsanto is planning farm trials in the Western US for next year.
