Dow to sell Intacta soybeans in Brazil

The Brazilian economic defence administrative council, the Cade, authorised late last month Dow’s licensing of Monsanto's insect-resistant and herbicide-tolerant Intacta RR2 Pro (MON87701xMON89788) soybeans. The non-exclusive deal was approved without restrictions and permits Dow to develop, test, produce and market the technology.
