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 .

4,6-Dibromo-3-hydroxypicolinonitrile may be prepared from furfural in a series of chemical steps selected from cyano-amination, amine salt formation and bromination-rearrangement. 4-Alkoxy-3-hydroxypicolinic acids may be conveniently prepared from 4,6-dibromo-3-hydroxypicolinonitrile in a series of chemical steps selected from bromo substitution, nitrile hydrolysis and halogen reduction.


An herbicidal composition containing (a) fluroxypyr and (b) cyhalofop, metamifop or profoxydim provides synergistic control of selected weeds particularly in rice.

Spray drift during the application of an aqueous mixture of glyphosate and an auxinic herbicide is reduced by incorporating certain tertiary amine surfactants into the aqueous solution or mixture to be sprayed.


Patent
National Research Council Canada and Dow AgroSciences | Date: 2017-03-29

The present disclosure relates to the isolation, purification, and characterization of a diacylglycerol acyltransferase 2 (DGAT2), and genes encoding DGAT2, from algae. DGAT2 can incorporate very long chain polyunsaturated fatty acids in to triacylglycerol more efficiently than DGAT1. The disclosure concerns methods of regulating seed oil content, fatty acid synthesis and fatty acid composition using the DGAT2 gene and to tissues and plants transformed with the gene. The disclosure also relates to transgenic plants, plant tissues and plant seeds having a genome containing an introduced DNA sequence of the disclosure, and a method of producing such plants and plant seeds.


Patent
Dow AgroSciences | Date: 2017-01-25

Insect controlling compositions including an N-substituted (6-haloalkylpyridin-3-yl)alkyl sulfoximine compound and one of: (i) an organic acid other than benthiavalicarb; (ii) a dicarboxylic acid or a salt thereof; and (iii) a tricarboxylic acid or a salt thereof, exhibit increased stability.


Patent
Dow AgroSciences | Date: 2017-03-08

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.


Patent
Dow AgroSciences | Date: 2017-04-19

The invention relates to methods for quantitative multiplex analysis of complex protein samples from plants using mass spectroscopy. In some embodiments, the disclosure concerns methods for maintaining a transgenic plant variety, for example by analyzing generations of a transgenic plant variety for selective and sensitive quantitation of multiplexed transgenic proteins.


Patent
Dow AgroSciences | Date: 2017-03-15

A system and method for the automated or semi-automated imagining and orienting of seeds to prepare the seeds for transformation and transgenic engineering. A method and apparatus for automated seed preparation is disclosed. According to one aspect, the method includes locating the seed on a surface or container, engaging the seed with an automated tool, orienting the seed for cutting or wounding and cutting or wounding the seed when the seed is oriented.
