Although no specific reporting requirements were required as part of this registration in 1995, EPA recommended the continued development of a data base to monitor the use of the genetically modified potatoes and correlate possible resistant reports with the use sites. Based on three-year averages, about 1 million acres of fall potatoes are planted in the U.S. annually. According to information provided in Monsanto/NatureMark’s annual status reports and meetings with the Agency, about 10,000 A (or 1% of the total) in 1996 and 25,000 A (or 2.5% of the total) in 1997 were planted in Bt potatoes (marketed as NewLeaf® Russet Burbank and NewLeaf® Superior and NewLeaf® Atlantic varieties) in the U.S.

Acreage information was gathered from 94 of 112 total customers in 1996. The proportion of NewLeaf® potatoes on these farms ranged from 0.1% to 69% of total potato acreage. Farm size

ranged from less than 500 to 5000 acres.

About 50,000 acres (<4%) of Bt potatoes were planted in
