Bayer to sell Syngenta’s GM VipCot cotton
Bayer CropScience is to market Syngenta’s genetically modified insect-resistant VipCot cotton. Syngenta has granted it a long-term, non-exclusive, worldwide licence to the technology. The addition of VipCot will complement its existing portfolio of cotton products, Bayer says. They include its herbicide-tolerant LibertyLink and GlyTol, and its insect-resistant TwinLink technologies.
