Brazil Embrapa/BASF launch Cultivance soybeans

BASF and the Brazilian agricultural research corporation, the Embrapa, have launched the first genetically modified soybean line completely developed in Brazil. The imidazolinone herbicide-tolerant Cultivance (CV127) soybeans were co-developed by the companies. The line gained Brazilian national technical commission for biosafety clearance some five years ago. Its market debut is planned for later this year, but demand for the product depended on EU import clearance. That came earlier this year. The companies agreed a 20-year marketing deal in 2007 with the aim of taking a 15-20% share of the national soybean market that is not based on glyphosate use.
