Verdeca Receives Approval of HB4 Drought and Herbicide Tolerant Soybeans in Paraguay
Verdeca, a joint venture between Arcadia Biosciences, Inc. and Bioceres Crop Solutions Corp., has announced it has successfully completed the regulatory review process and received approval for its HB4 drought and herbicide tolerant soybeans from the Paraguayan Minister of Agriculture, through the National Commission for Agricultural and Forestry Biosafety.
The HB4 stack is Verdeca’s newest product release from its pipeline of traits developed to benefit soybean producers through quality improvement, stress mitigation and management practices.
“HB4 is a novel soybean trait that enhances the traditional herbicide tolerance package to provide yield stability across diverse environments,” said Martin Mariani Ventura, general manager of Verdeca. “Approval of this technology in Paraguay is another significant step for the successful commercialization of HB4 technology in the South American soybean market.”
