Dow AgroSciences, Monsanto Complete U.S. and Canadian Regulatory Authorizations for SmartStax Corn; Plans Set to Launch Seed Platform on 3 Million- to 4 Million-Plus Acres
Date:7/20/2009

nsistent with both companies' commitment to follow the Biotechnology Industry Organization's (BIO) Product Launch Stewardship Policy, Dow AgroSciences and Monsanto are also working with the regulatory agencies in key countries to have import approvals for SmartStax in place prior to the 2010 U.S. season. These regulatory submissions are on track to support commercialization for the 2010 U.S. crop season.

Dow AgroSciences Commercial Plans

Two years of pre-registration field trials conducted by Dow AgroSciences shows that SmartStax provides a greater level of insect protection than corn traits currently on the market. In corn rootworm trials during 2007 and 2008, SmartStax more consistently protected plant roots from western corn rootworm than first generation insect traits. Results of trials conducted by Dow AgroSciences against the most prevalent above-ground pests show that SmartStax prevents crop damage more effectively than either HERCULEX((R) )Insect Protection or YieldGard VT PRO alone.

"SmartStax has been highly anticipated by the industry, and extensive Dow AgroSciences research gives us confidence that the trait combination will provide more value than current traits on the market through more consistent insect control and reduced refuge," said Brent Stauffacher, SmartStax Product Manager for Dow AgroSciences. "Dow AgroSciences will offer SmartStax in elite hybrids with the latest genetics starting next season giving corn growers the tools they need to improve crop yields."

SmartStax will be sold by Dow AgroSciences through its seed brands which include Mycogen Seeds, Dairyland, Renze, Brodbeck, and Triumph.

Dow AgroSciences will use SmartStax as the platform to launch future trait technologies including Dow AgroSciences Herbicide Tolerant Trait technology and other agronomic enhancement
