1. A process for producing a fertile transgenic Zea mays plant comprising the steps of (i) bombarding intact regenerable Zea mays cells with DNA-coated microprojectiles, wherein said DNA comprises at least a screenable marker gene;

  • (ii) selecting a population of transformed cells expressing the selectable marker gene; and

    (iii) regenerating a fertile transgenic plant therefrom, wherein said DNA is expressed so as to impart glyphosate resistance to said transgenic plant and is transmitted through a normal sexual cycle of said transgenic plant to progeny plants.
