Monsanto progress with bioengineered wheat
Monsanto (US) have said they have moved to the “early development” stage of its herbicide-tolerant wheat. Although it is said to be several years away from the final product, it is a step closer to the aim of producing a bioengineered wheat variety.
The herbicide tolerant wheat was designed to give farmers a broader weed control choice for weed management with glyphosate tolerant wheat. Monsanto currently has 29 projects in the pipeline.
