Monsanto brands dicamba-tolerant cotton

Monsanto has branded its multiple herbicide-tolerant and insect-resistant genetically modified cotton as Bollgard II XtendFlex. It combines glyphosate-tolerant Roundup Ready Flex (MON88913) with dicamba- and glufosinate-tolerant MON88701 and insect-resistant Bollgard II (MON15985). Monsanto aims to introduce the cotton in the US in 2015 subject to approvals being in place. It will be offered in Monsanto’s Deltapine seed range and through selected licensees. The USDA recently invited public comment on a deregulation request for MON88701 cotton ( Agrow No 659, p 18).
