AgTech: Develop and Commercialize Innovative Traits in Soybeans.

Dow AgroSciences, Arcadia Biosciences and Bioceres, announced an agreement to develop and commercialize innovative traits in soybeans.

Under the collaboration, the companies will develop new soybean traits using Dow AgroSciences Precision Technology platform to generate soybean trait. This will combine Verdeca’s agronomic performance and product quality traits with Dow AgroSciences’ herbicide-tolerant and insect-resistant traits. The Precision Technology platform will facilitate the development of multiple traits with greater degrees of precision and speed-to-market. This collaboration is expected to result in products that provide soybean growers around the world with unique and powerful options to achieve greater yields and improved on-farm economics.

Dow AgroSciences has developed the EXZACT Precision Technology platform under an exclusive license and collaboration agreement in plants with Sangamo BioSciences, Inc.

“Soybean farmers are looking for productivity, and this collaboration holds great promise for the technology we can offer them,” said Tim Hassinger, president and CEO of Dow AgroSciences. “Our own expertise, combined with Arcadia’s leadership position in abiotic stress traits and Bioceres’ strong relationship with large soybean growers, presents a unique opportunity for greater yields.”
