Monsanto wins approval in Brazil for GM soy seed Intacta2 Xtend
SAO PAULO, March 8 (Reuters) - The Brazilian unit of
Monsanto Co said on Thursday it received commercial
approval from Brazilian regulator CTNBio for its
genetically-modified soy seed Intacta2 Xtend, a variety
resistant to weed killer dicamba, Monsanto said in a statement
sent to Reuters.
The new seed can also protect the crop against most species
of Spodoptera caterpillars, Monsanto said, adding that it plans
to start selling the new technology in Brazil in 2020.
