Monsanto opens research station in Brazil

Monsanto has opened its 36th facility in Brazil this month. The research plant is located in Petrolina and designed to accelerate the development process and the launch in Brazil of technology in cotton, maize, sorghum, soybeans and sugar cane. The facility covers some 4,300 m 2. It will focus primarily on biotechnology and genetic improvement technology in maize in the near term. Work on other crops will follow. Regulatory director Geraldo Berger says that the plant counts on a “complete and sustainable physical infrastructure along with a particular local climate allowing the company to align and accelerate the development of technology” for use in Brazil. The opening has coincided with the company’s 50th anniversary in the country, it notes.
