Wave of New Tech Firms Targeting Farms in Weather Wars

Nine mini-weather stations from the Canadian firm Farmer’s Edge, along with daily satellite imagery from San Francisco-based Planet, provide Scherman with an intimate and easily accessible assessment for each of his fields. At the same time, seed sellers Bayer Ag, Syngenta AG and DowDuPont Inc. are scouring the earth for more crop genes that will let them further geo-engineer plants to thrive in tough weather. “We see right now a new paradigm in the production of corn and soybeans,” said Al D...

China's approval of DowDuPont soy poses challenge to Bayer

China's approval of imports of a DowDuPont Inc genetically modified soybean puts rival Bayer AG on the defensive, investors and analysts said, as U.S. farmers will have a new choice when planting their most valuable agricultural export. Bayer-owned Monsanto has long dominated the $40 billion U.S. soybean market. The market has opened up, though, as Monsanto's Roundup Ready line of seeds - engineered to tolerate the weed killer glyphosate - has lost effectiveness as weeds develop tolerance ...

Gene-editing startups ignite the next 'Frankenfood' fight

Calyxt Inc, an eight-year-old firm co-founded by a genetics professor, altered the genes of a soybean plant to produce healthier oil using the cutting-edge editing technique rather than conventional genetic modification. Seventy-eight farmers planted those soybeans this spring across 17,000 acres in South Dakota and Minnesota, a crop expected to be the first gene-edited crop to sell commercially, beating out Fortune 500 companies. Seed development giants such as Monsanto, Syngenta AG and DowDu...
