Monsanto sets Intacta price in Brazil
Monsanto has set prices for its genetically modified insect-resistant and glyphosate-tolerant Intacta RR 2 Pro soybeans (MON87701xMON89788) in Brazil at R$115 (US$63) at the current rate) per ha. The company expects the soybeans to become available to Brazilian farmers for the 2012/13 season. Launch has been delayed until major importers grant import approvals. Intacta soybeans were authorised in Brazil some 18 months ago ( Agrow No 602, p 24). The insect-resistant version was developed for the Brazilian market.
