Monsanto to invest $20 million in plant breeding centres

Monsanto is to invest $20 million over the next two years in integrated technology centres in the US as part of its global plant breeding programme.  The centres will be located in Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Maryland, Minnesota and Nebraska. They will allow the company to combine some local operations, utilise new advancements and discoveries, and share best practices across crop research, Monsanto notes. "We are at a unique inflection point in the evolution of plant breeding where data science and predictive analytics will help to unlock previously untapped potential of plant genetics," says Sam Eathington, Monsanto's vice-president of global plant breeding. "Monsanto is committed to continue to deliver new agricultural solutions through plant breeding so that farmers can keep up with the growing demands of food production in the face of population growth and climate change," he adds.
