Enlist License Agreement

“At MS Technologies™ we are very pleased that Syngenta has decided to license Enlist E3 soybeans and Conkesta E3 soybeans,” said Joe Merschman, President of MS Technologies. “Having Syngenta on board will allow us to work together to provide more soybean farmers with elite soybean genetics and exceptional weeding.” Syngenta announced today that it has entered into non-exclusive licensing agreements with Dow AgroSciences LLC and M.S. Technologies, L.L., .C. for the Enlist E3 event for soybeans in the United States, Canada and Latin America and with the Conkesta Enlist E3 Stack for soybeans in Latin America, with global rights options for both. Syngenta has also entered into a non-exclusive licensing agreement with Dow AgroSciences on global rights to the Enlist in Corn event. Terms of the deal were not disclosed. “We will now have the opportunity to incorporate these characteristics into our genetics to provide growers with additional seed and feature options with greater genetic diversity,” said Jeff Rowe, Syngenta President of Global Seeds and North America, “This is another step in meeting our commitment, improving our seed offering and ensuring farmers continue to choose from.” “The Enlist system of new features and advanced herbicides is, together with Conkesta, the most complete and effective line of weed and insect control. We are pleased to concede these innovative technologies and thus secure our strategy to ensure wide availability to farmers across America who need this technology to further increase their productivity,” said Joe Vertin, Global Business Leader, Enlist Weed Control System, Dow AgroSciences. “At MS TechnologiesTM, we are delighted that Syngenta has licensed Enlist E3 soybeans and Conkesta E3 soybeans,” said Joe Merschman, president of MS Technologies. “Having Syngenta on board will allow us to work together to provide more soybean farmers with elite soybean genetics and exceptional weeding.” To plant Enlist, Herculex, and PowerCore seeds, you need a limited license from Dow AgroSciences LLC (or other suitable associated companies).

In light of the above, Dow AgroSciences grants the breeder the limited license to use its technology for the production of a single cash crop in the United States, under the conditions set out in the technology use agreement in effect at the time of planting these seeds. Managing insect resistance is a prerequisite for buying insect-protected plants. Before opening a seed bag, you should read and understand the stewardess requirements, including the applicable protective requirements for insect resistance management, for the biotechnological characteristics expressed in the seeds, as outlined in the technology agreements you have signed. By opening and using a seed bag, you reaffirm your commitment to meeting these stewardess requirements. Syngenta is currently implementing an agreement to meet all of the above-mentioned technology requirements.
