Dow AgroSciences LLC is a wholly owned subsidiary of the Dow Chemical Company specializing in not only agricultural chemicals such as pesticides, but also seeds and biotechnology solutions. The company is based in Indianapolis, Indiana, in the United States. On 31 January, 2006, Dow AgroSciences announced that it had received regulatory approval for the world's first plant-cell-produced vaccine against Newcastle disease virus from USDA Center for Veterinary Biologics. Dow AgroSciences operates brand names such as Sentricon, Vikane, Mycogen, SmartStax, Pfister Seed, Phytogen, Prairie Brand Seed, Profume, Renze Seeds and Triumph Seed.Dow AgroSciences also produces Omega-9 canola and sunflower oils. These oils are said to be more healthy than alternative oils due to a combination of high-oleic and low-linoleic fatty acids.In October 2011, the U.S. Justice Department announced that a biotech specialist at Cargill had pleaded guilty to stealing information from Cargill and Dow AgroSciences. Kexue Huang, a Chinese national, was discovered to be passing information back to China from Dow for at least 3 years, from 2007 to 2010.Dow AgoSciences' Enlist Weed Control System is in the approval stage as of 2014.Dow AgroSciences has recently received the registration of Arylex active from the Chinese Institute for the Control of Agrochemicals, Ministry of Agriculture .

Patent
Dow AgroSciences and M.S. Technologies L.L.C. | Date: 2017-01-05

This invention relates in part to soybean event pDAB8264.44.06.1 and includes a novel expression cassettes and transgenic inserts comprising multiple traits conferring resistance to glyphosate, aryloxyalkanoate, and glufosinate herbicides. This invention also relates in part to methods of controlling resistant weeds, plant breeding and herbicide tolerant plants. In some embodiments, the event sequence can be stacked with other traits, including, for example, other herbicide tolerance gene(s) and/or insect-inhibitory proteins. This invention further relates in part to endpoint TaqMan PCR assays for the detection of Event pDAB8264.44.06.1 in soybeans and related plant material. Some embodiments can perform high throughput zygosity analysis of plant material and other embodiments can be used to uniquely identify the zygosity of and breed soybean lines comprising the event of the subject invention. Kits and conditions useful in conducting these assays are also provided.

Methods for preparing a borylated aromatic compound by contacting an aromatic substrate with a catalytic cobalt complex and a borylation reagent under conditions effective to form the borylated aromatic compound are provided. The catalytic cobalt complex can be any suitable cobalt(l) or cobalt(ll) complex that can catalyze the C-H activation-borylation of the aromatic substrate.


Tankmix additive concentrates containing a surfactant and a petroleum derived paraffinic oil and the use of aqueous pesticide spray mixtures incorporating such tankmix additive concentrates are described. The tankmix additive concentrates described herein include from 0.5 to 50 weight percent of a polymeric surfactant, a anionic ester surfactant, a nonionic surfactant, or mixtures thereof, and from 1 to 95 weight percent of a petroleum derived paraffinic oil. The tankmix additive concentrates form a stable emulsion upon dilution into a pesticide spray mixture.

Disclosed are methods for transformation of an androgenic-derived, haploid cell line with a site-specific nuclease. In some embodiments, the androgenic-derived, haploid cell line is a maize microspore-derived plant tissue culture. In addition, the disclosure provides a method for modifying, e.g., by mutating or targeting and integrating donor DNA into, a specific locus of a haploid or dihaploid tissue genome. The disclosure further provides methods for regenerating a whole plant from the haploid or dihaploid tissue that contains either the mutation at a specific genomic locus or a donor DNA integrated within a specific genomic locus may be obtained from the subject disclosure.


Described herein are murine monoclonal antibodies and methods useful for determining and quantitating the presence of Cry1Ca delta endotoxin. The claimed antibodies specifically bind the core toxin region making them suitable for detecting the native full length Cry1Ca toxin as well as the amino core toxin and N-terminal 29 residue truncated forms.
