Syngenta/Beck's GM maize deal

Syngenta has entered into an agreement with the US seed company, Beck’s Superior Hybrids (Atlanta, Indiana), to market Syngenta’s genetically modified insect-resistant and herbicide-tolerant Agrisure maize hybrids under the new Phoenix brand. The hybrids will be available for the 2012 planting season. The move is aimed at increasing access to Syngenta’s maize germplasm and traits, particularly in the eastern Corn Belt, the company says. Beck’s was among the first seed companies to produce and sell Syngenta’s Agrisure Viptera 3111 maize in 2010. Syngenta introduced 41 Viptera 3111 maize hybrids in the US last year ( Agrow No 599, p 21).
