BayNews International, 04/13/2012
Bayer CropScience and KWS SAAT AG have signed an agreement to jointly develop and commercialize an innovative system of weed control in sugar beet for the global market. The technology is based on the breeding of sugar beet varieties that are tolerant to herbicides in the ALS–inhibitor–class with broad–spectrum weed control. This will give farmers a new opportunity to make sugar beet cultivation easier, more flexible in its timing and more environmentally friendly. The system is scheduled to be available to farmers in some years.
