Cibus Global announced a partnership with crop protection product manufacturer Rotam. Under the terms of the collaboration, Rotam will provide herbicides aligned with the value-added canola traits Cibus is developing. This partnership offers farmers a more environmentally friendly, one-pass weed control system.

Cibus has developed protection and performance enhancement traits for canola using its patented Rapid Trait Development System (RTDS). RTDS is an environmentally safe trait development procedure that avoids the introduction of foreign genetic material into plants by mimicking natural methods in a highly targeted way.RTDS has been recognized by the USDA as a mutagenesis technique, and is therefore not subject to the regulations applied to transgenic (or GM) crops.
