Scientistst at the Universidad del Litoral in Argentina have succeeded in inserting the HB4 gene to soybeans. This gene confers resistance to drought and to saline soils applicable to wheat and soybeans. The gene is the main asset of the company Bioceres, composed of 308 members who are leading agricultural producers who bet on plant technology.

The HB4 has already been approved by the local authorities for soybeans and is about to be authorized by China, one of the main destinations for Argentine soybeans.
