Monsanto furthers Brazil crop research support

Monsanto is investing R$8.3 million ($4.7 million) in a joint enterprise in Brazil focused on eight projects covering genetically modified crops and crop protection. The deal is part of a research fund set up with the Brazilian agricultural research corporation, the Embrapa. Among the projects to benefit from the increased investment are those on cotton bollworm ( Helicoverpa zea) research, studies on virus-resistant papayas and on GM cereals and beans conferring output traits. Monsanto has worked with the corporation on several projects, including most recently on corn rootworm ( Diabrotica spp)-resistant maize and potatoes, and the susceptibility of lepidopteran pests to Bt toxins and insecticides ( Agrow No 573, p 19).
