Monsanto moves into seed treatments

Monsanto is to establish a global seed treatment business to complement its seed and trait operation. The company plans to apply a proprietary seed treatment to all of its second-generation glyphosate-tolerant Roundup Ready 2 Yield soybeans, which are due to be introduced in 2009 (Agrow No 537, p 22). A seed treatment will also be applied to the multiple insect-resistant SmartStax maize, which is being developed with Dow AgroSciences and is due to be launched in 2010 (Agrow No 528, p 2). Plans are also under way to develop a seed treatment for Monsanto's Deltapine cotton varieties by 2011.
