Dow/Verdeca to develop soybean stacks

Dow AgroSciences has entered into an agreement to develop and commercialise novel genetically modified soybean lines with the Verdeca joint venture between US agricultural biotechnology company Arcadia (Davis, California) and the Argentine soybean development consortium, Bioceres (Rosario). The companies will use Dow's Exzact Precision Technology platform to generate soybean stacks of input and output traits. They will combine Verdeca's agronomic and product quality traits with Dow's herbicide tolerance and insect resistance traits. Use of the Exzact technology will facilitate the development of multiple stacks with greater degrees of precision and speed to market, Dow points out. It has developed the technology under an exclusive licensing and collaboration agreement with US genomics firm Sangamo BioSciences. The Verdeca joint venture was formed in 2012.
