Dow is targeting the soybean market.

Dow Chemical and the gene trait provider M.S. Technologies have made a joint submission to USDA for the first-ever soybean that tolerates three herbicides: glyphosate, glufosinate, and a quaternary ammonium salt of 2,4-D.

Pending regulatory approvals, the company expects the new soybeans to be available by mid-decade.
