New Collaboration Aims To Expand Seed-Based Technologies, Benefit Farmers
Date:1/27/2009

p products with a greater number of characteristics such as higher yield, and tolerance to insects, weeds and other stresses," Padgette said.

Such tools will be critical in helping Monsanto meet its sustainability goal of doubling yields in core crops by 2030, he said.

"We will need to use the best technologies available to maximize the potential of these crops," Padgette said.

Another goal of the collaboration is to identify genes that help plants fight environmental stresses such as nitrogen deficiency. The collaboration is expected to build upon Monsanto's research philosophy of developing valuable families of technologies for the challenges farmers routinely face on farm.

"We are excited to form an alliance with Monsanto," said Philip Benfey, president and chief executive of GrassRoots. "Our technologies and expertise combined with Monsanto's commercialization pipeline will provide a means of rapidly moving new genes and promoters into the field."
