Monsanto licenses genetically modified organisms in Brazil

Monsanto has formed a licensing agreement with two Brazilian research companies to use its Roundup Ready soybean and Bt cotton genes. The genetically modified sugar cane specialists, A Alexyll and CanaVialis of the Votorantim Novos Negocios (VNN - Sao Paulo) research fund group, are to use the genes in sugar cane varieties. "The first step in the collaboration will focus on the development and commercialisation of sugar cane varieties containing Monsanto's insect-protected and herbicide-tolerant technologies," Monsanto told Agrow. "[It will] help Alellyx/CanaVialis to provide better pest management solutions to the sugar cane growers of Brazil," the company adds.
