"Our agreement with Biotrigo is another step toward a world-class research platform for wheat genetics," said Hartmut van Lengerich, head of cereals and fungicides at Bayer CropScience. "We have entered into collaborations with the best partners in wheat research and breeding across the world. Now we are also looking forward to working with the motivated and experienced Biotrigo team."

"Biotrigo is a global leader in combining grain yield and end-use quality with resistance to difficult-to-control diseases," said Edward Souza, director of wheat breeding at Bayer CropScience. "Their guidance will help us continue to build our capacity in Europe and emerging markets."

For André Rosa, Biotrigo business director, the agreement with Bayer CropScience is important because it strengthens the company's growth and contributes to its vision of leadership in Latin America.

According to Ottoni Rosa Filho, Biotrigo technical director, the agreement will enable an even greater investment in research and development, contributing to generations of innovation for wheat farmers. "This agreement enables Biotrigo and its partners to be more competitive by enhancing their portfolio of cultivars in the medium and long-term," assured Filho.

According to André Rosa, Bayer CropScience is synonymous with quality in everything it does. "This agreement with one of the most successful and respected agricultural companies in the world thanks to its brand and solutions shows that the quality of research at Biotrigo is being recognized."

The expansion of this collaboration is focused on regions outside the Americas.
