Monsanto to open new tech center for wheat in Idaho
Monsanto announced plans to open a new technology center for wheat in Idaho. The new center will be based in southern Idaho and scientists will study ways to increase wheat production.
The Idaho Wheat Commission has given its approval to Monsanto to create the new center in Filer, Idaho, according to The Capital Press.
The company’s announcement is timely after a strain of volunteer genetically modified wheat that was resistant to glyphosate was found in Oregon recently. The strain found is thought to be the same as the strain Monsanto was developing to be herbicide resistant to glyphosate, but had not been approved for commercial sale.
