Designation The genetically modified maize DAS-Ø15Ø7-1xMON-ØØ6Ø3-6, as described in the application, is produced by crosses between maize containing DAS-Ø15Ø7-1 and MON-ØØ6Ø3-6 events and expresses the Cry1F protein which confers protection against certain lepidopteran pests such as the European corn borer (Ostrinia nubilalis) and species belonging to the genus Sesamia, the PAT protein which confers tolerance to the glufosinate-ammonium herbicide, and the CP4 EPSPS protein which confers tolerance to the glyphosate herbicide.
