INDIANAPOLIS, Ind., Nov. 10, 2022 – Corteva Agriscience has won a Crop Science Award in the “Best Industry Collaboration” category together with BASF Agricultural Solutions and M.S. Technologies L.L.C. for the collaboration of a mutually beneficial trait licensing agreement that was announced in June 2022. The awards – formerly Agrow Awards – were presented as part of the virtual Crop Science Forum by S&P Global Commodity Insights and recognize excellence in crop protection and digital agriculture industries worldwide. 2022 marked the 15th year of the Crop Science Awards, with a total of 12 categories.
The three companies announced the execution of a mutually beneficial trait licensing agreement to develop an industry first-of-its-kind soybean trait stack.

In turn, Corteva and MS Technologies licensed the Enlist E3 soybean trait to BASF for development with the NRS trait in BASF germplasm. The transgenic soybean event in Enlist E3 soybeans is jointly developed and owned by Corteva Agriscience and M.S. Technologies L.L.C.
