Monsanto to share technologies with Danforth Center to support global cassava research

ted Nations Human Development Report 2001 also encouraged greater public investment in research and development to ensure that biotechnology is used to meet the agricultural needs of the world's poor.

"By sharing our technology and other scientific knowledge, Monsanto hopes to encourage other companies and technology developers to do the same, said Robb Fraley, Chief Technology Officer of Monsanto.

Working together in public and private sector partnerships promotes a wide variety of discoveries to enhance food security and nutrition throughout the developing world. We look forward to continuing our support of the cassava research program as it develops, said Fraley.

Monsanto also is supporting the Danforth Centers efforts to develop virus-resistant cassava through a multi-year grant from the companys philanthropic organization, the Monsanto Fund. Monsantos contributions to the Danforth Center are in keeping with the New Monsanto Pledge and its commitment to sharing knowledge and technology with public institutions to benefit people and the environment, particularly in the developing world.

In August 2000, Monsanto granted similar royalty-free licenses to the inventors of golden rice, which is being developed to combat vitamin A deficiency in developing countries. Other sharing projects include providing access to a working draft of the rice genome and participating in work to develop virus-resistant sweet potatoes in Africa and papayas in South East Asia.
