US agricultural research firm AgBiome, and Genective, key developer of biotech crops, announce a strategic partnership to accelerate the discovery of new generations of insect control traits.
 
"Growers need new traits for insect control to counter the realities of advancing insect resistance. We are pleased to partner with Genective, aligning AgBiome's unique insect control technology with Genective's capability in developing transgenic traits," said Eric Ward, co-chief executive officer at AgBiome.
 
Genective's CEO Bruce Lee commented, "Our success in developing corn traits, combined with AgBiome's unique pipeline for identifying a vast number of new candidate trait genes, will offer the seed industry a potential range of novel and critically needed products."
 
AgBiome and Genective share the vision that genetically modified organisms (GMOs) constitute an important means to face future challenges in agriculture. The exact terms and rights granted to each partner are not being disclosed.
