Arcadia/TGI aim at herbicide-tolerant wheat - update
The US biotechnology companies, Arcadia Biosciences (Davis, California), and Targeted Growth Inc (TGI - Seattle, Washington), have agreed to collaborate on the development and commercialisation of glyphosate-tolerant wheat. The non-genetically modified wheat lines will be developed using Arcadia’s “advanced genetic screening technology”, the companies say. TGI gains exclusive global rights to the wheat lines and Arcadia receives an upfront fee, milestone payments and a share of commercial sales. No details of when commercialisation will take place are available.
