Zeneca in US deal with Monsanto

ZENECA, the pharmaceuticals and agrochemicals business, has struck an agreement with the US life sciences group Monsanto.

An out-of-court deal will allow Zeneca to market its Touchdown herbicide for use with the US groups genetically modified (GM) crops.

Monsanto had previously attempted to prevent Zeneca marketing Touchdown as a substitute for its own Roundup herbicide.
