Monsanto Company outlined its new platform on weed management to provide the framework needed to manage weeds in the absence or presence of glyphosate-resistance. The Roundup Ready PLUS platform allows farmers to increase the benefits of their Roundup Ready crops by using the best practice recommendations and receiving financial incentives for following the program. The platform is designed to provide effective and sustainable weed control benefits for farmers. The announcement was made this morning at the opening of the Sunbelt Ag Expo in Moultrie, Ga., where the company's team is visiting with Southeastern farmers.

In addition, Monsanto Company, Sumitomo Chemical Co., Ltd. and its wholly-owned subsidiary, Valent U.S.A. Corporation, announced a long-term agreement that makes the companies strategic partners in Monsanto's Roundup Ready PLUS weed management platform in the United States. In addition, Monsanto and SCC have agreed to seek further collaboration on weed management opportunities with SCC's flumioxazin products in other countries such as Brazil and Argentina.

Monsanto also joined forces with Makhteshim Agan Group in an agreement that makes Makhteshim Agan key partner of selected off-patent molecules to support Monsanto's Roundup Ready PLUS weed management platform.
