BASF/INTA in Argentine ag research deal

BASF has reached a preliminary agreement with the Argentine national agricultural technology institute, the INTA, on scientific and technological co-operation. The deal is designed to include the development of agricultural biotechnology and crop protection products among others. Development of products will be aimed at national and neighbouring country needs. The president of BASF Agro’s regional business including Argentina, Bolivia, Paraguay and Uruguay, Lopez Casanelles, says that such public-private collaborations are “essential” in order to be competitive in the food industry. The parties have previously worked together, including on imidazolinone herbicide-tolerant Clearfield wheat and cotton, other seed varieties, and pheromones for the control of grapevine moths ( Lobesia botrana).
