Co-op with China benefits Argentine bio-tech company in agriculture

Bioceres aims to increase crop productivity and add value to raw materials in the agricultural field, with fully integrated biotechnology.

Located in the city of Rosario, 300 kilometers north of Buenos Aires, it has benefited from cooperation with Chinese partners since 2013.

“The first goal of our collaboration is not to generate soybean products in Argentina, but to develop technologies with Chinese components.”

Seed breeding, industrial expansion and provision of services constitute the three pillars of the bilateral research and development.

“(We join hands) to develop components for local production in Argentina and Latin America, but they are consumed in China.”

So far, Bioceres and its Chinese partners have found ways to help push up yield of soybean and corn, as well as their tolerance to drought and salinity.

Such achievement makes both sides determined to keep welding advantages and share more components in the future.
