Description
The stacked maize line was obtained through the traditional cross breeding of the parental organisms MON-89Ø34-3 and MON-ØØ6Ø3-6. The line inherited genes that express cry1A.105, cry2Ab2 and cp4epsps. The expression of these genes confer glyphosate herbicide tolerance and resistance to Lepidoptera and Coleoptera.
Recipient Organism or Parental Organisms
The term Recipient organism refers to an organism (either already modified or non-modified) that was subjected to genetic modification, whereas Parental organisms refers to those that were involved in cross breeding or cell fusion.

Notes regarding the genetic elements introduced or modified in this LMO
DNA insert from MON89034 vector PV-ZMIR245

Maize line MON89034 expresses two Bt-toxins encoded by the genes cry1A.105 and cry2Ab2 from Bacillus thuringiensis that confer resistance against certain lepidopteran pests.

DNA insert from NK603, vector PV-ZMGT32:

The NK603 line of maize was developed to allow the use of glyphosate, the active ingredient in the herbicide Roundup®, as a weed control option. NK603 contains a form of the plant enzyme 5-enolpyruvylshikimate-3-phosphate synthase (EPSPS) that allows the plant to survive the otherwise lethal application of glyphosate.
