Monsanto Company and AgraQuest Inc. have entered into a collaboration to evaluate the potential use of AgraQuest's pipeline of biopesticide leads to develop seed treatments for Monsanto's core crops and vegetables.
The three-year deal is aimed at developing seed treatment products to control nematodes, disease and insects, and enhance plant growth and yield, using AgraQuest's collection of microbes. This technology could help Monsanto researchers develop additional modes of action for insect, nematode, and disease control.
