oxidative stress resistance (superoxide dismutase), herbicide tolerance (glufosinate)
An isolation distance of 300 m to other fields containing conventional maize needs to be respected. The transgenic material also needs to be surrounded by a non-transgenic maize border of 4 rows. Before and after the experiment the cleaning of the drill will be guaranteed. At the end of the experiment the vegetative material and the non-transgenic maize border will be destroyed (incorporation into soil).
After harvest the volunteer plants need to be controlled and destroyed. The first years after the trials, the cultivation of maize at the location of the trials will be forbidden.
