A licensing agreement between DuPont and Monsanto for Intacta RR2 PRO Technology in Brazil was reached on June 27. 

The Intacta RR2 PRO Technology is a next-generation soybean technology from Monsanto. The agreement states that DuPont Pioneer will "receive a royalty-bearing license to Intacta RR2 PRO technology in Brazil" after customary review and approval by Brazilian regulatory authorities.

“DuPont Pioneer looks forward to bringing the Intacta insect technology together with leading soybean genetics to Brazilian growers as early as the 2017 selling season,” Alejandro Muñoz, DuPont Pioneer vice president, said. “The combination of technology, genetics, and DuPont Dermacor seed treatment will help advance the productivity of soybean growers while providing enhanced insect control and strengthening their integrated pest management practices.”

Monsanto is happy it has come to an agreement concerning the technology. 

The Intacta RR2 Pro soybeans are an important part of Monsanto’s platform, especially in Brazil. This specific technology will give Brazilian soybean growers with increased yield potential, protection against popular soybean pests, and tolerance to glyphosate herbicide.
