Syngenta Seeds to license soybean germplasm through GreenLeaf Genetics

Independent seed companies will have access to Syngenta soybean germplasm through GreenLeaf Genetics.

The varieties initially offered will combine Syngenta soybean genetics with the Genuity Roundup Ready 2 Yield trait. Independent seed companies will be able to plant these initial varieties for testing and production in 2011. Companies will be required to have a Genuity Roundup Ready 2 Yield license from Monsanto.

Syngenta assumed full ownership of Greenleaf Genetics in November 2010, when the joint venture between Syngenta Seeds and DuPont business Pioneer Hi-Bred was dissolved
