Bayer CropScience and the biotech company Scivax Corporation, Kawasaki, Japan, have entered into a cooperation on yield enhancement under abiotic stress conditions in plants, initially in cotton. Under the terms of this agreement, Bayer CropScience will sponsor and support Scivax's Research & Development activities in these traits for the next three years.

Scivax has been developing technologies for enhanced yield since 2005 under collaboration with Professor Teruhiro Takabe of Meijo University and Professor Tetsuko Takabe of Nagoya University. The company has demonstrated the value of their technology under abiotic stress conditions in greenhouse trials with a variety of crops. Scivax and Bayer will now join forces to further optimize the technology.

We anticipate that Scivax' innovative technology will contribute to further strengthening our competitive position in the global cotton market, especially with regard to ensuring higher yields in difficult climatic conditions.”
