Corteva Agriscience, Agriculture Division of Dowdupont, and Monsanto announced the completion of a licensing agreement for next-generation technology for insect control in corn for the US and Canada.

Wilmington/USA — Corteva Agriscience will receive a license to stack Monsanto’s Corn Rootworm III and Mon 89034 traits with Corteva Agriscience’s insect control traits. This agreement enables the development of the next generation of insect control technology for above- and below-ground insect pests, and will be offered with the Enlist herbicide tolerant trait for corn, the companies stated. Financial details of the agreement have not been disclosed.

Calvin Treat, Monsanto’s Global Soy and Corn Technology Lead, said that Corn Rootworm III trait builds on the current products planted today by adding a new RNAi mode of action that enhanced effectiveness against one of the industry’s most destructive insect pests. Corn Rootworm III offered increased control and additional durability against the corn rootworm by providing three distinct methods of protection, he added.
