The companies have decided for joint development of HPPD soybean trait. The new tool will look to combat weed resistance.

MONHEIM, GERMANY: Bayer CropScience and Syngenta announced a co-development agreement on an HPPD herbicide tolerance trait for soybeans. The trait is in early development with launch in North America expected in the second half of this decade. By incorporating tolerance to HPPD herbicides and thereby enabling the use of leading weed control products, the new trait will provide a powerful mode of action for weed control and the management of weed resistance, particularly to glyphosate. The trait will have significant potential for out-licensing as well as in the companies’ respective branded seeds businesses. 

“Through this collaboration we will be able to further complement our HPPD herbicide portfolio and our trait pipeline for soybeans with yet another solution for improved grower productivity and sustainability. HPPD technology will complement our resistance breaking LibertyLink trait and will provide powerful alternatives to other herbicide tolerance products in development,” said Lykele van der Broek, Chief Operating Officer, Bayer CropScience.
