MARYVILLE, MO (2011-01-07) A Missouri-based company is re-inventing corn plants that could mean less fertilizer costs for farmers.
Monsanto announced progress on nine of its research projects on genetically engineered crops yesterday. Monsanto's vice president of biotechnology Steve Padgette says several collaborations with the Germany-based BASF plant science will move forward this year. That includes genetically-modifying corn plants to make them use nitrogen more efficiently. Other projects will seek to increase yields, drought tolerance, and herbicide resistance in soybeans and wheat.
