Monsanto/BASF soybean nematode deal

Monsanto and BASF have entered into a research and commercialisation agreement over methods to control soybean cyst nematodes (Heterodera glycines). The companies have also formed a long-term collaboration to develop higher yielding and drought-tolerant crops through biotechnology. Genetically modified nematode-resistant soybeans are at an early stage in Monsanto's R&D pipeline and are not scheduled for commercialisation this decade (Agrow No 516, p 3). The company recently extended an agreement with US genomics firm Divergence to develop nematode-resistant soybeans (Agrow No 512, p 3).
