Monsanto Co. has launched Acceleron brand seed treatment as part of the company’s seed treatment platform announced earlier this year.
Acceleron brand seed treatments are designed to help maximize crop performance potential beginning at planting. It will provide new seed performance technologies designed to enhance the company’s elite genetics and trait technologies.
Monsanto’s global seed treatment platform complements the company’s seed and trait strategy, as well as its investments in breeding and biotechnology. The platform focuses on identifying new proprietary seed-based technologies that can be launched in parallel with soybean, corn, and cotton products. Acceleron will be the brand for these treatments; introduction to market will be on Roundup Ready 2 Yield soybeans for the 2009 season.
