EU approves Dow AgroSciences corn products

The European Union Commission has approved using genetically altered corn developed by Indianapolis-based Dow AgroSciences LLC and DuPont for use in animal feeds, and for human consumption and other uses.

Dow AgroSciences is the agricultural arm of Dow Chemical Co. of Midland, Mich. Dow AgroSciences has been investing in biotechnology in an effort to diversify away from its core pesticide business.
