Genuity™ Roundup Ready® Canola Technology Use Agreement
The canola TUA (Technology Use Agreement) is an annual contract that accurately reports a grower’s purchase of Genuity™ Roundup Ready® Canola seed, the variety and total number of bags of Roundup Ready® canola seed purchased by or on behalf of the grower for that crop year. The canola TUA obligates the grower to pay the applicable per Kg technology fee for the Genuity™ Roundup Ready® Canola seed purchased by or on behalf of the grower for such crop year.
The vast majority of growers indicate that they will respect their agreement not to save Roundup Ready seed. At the same time, we are committed to protect the intellectual property rights defined in the TUA in order to ensure that Monsanto Canada shares the value of Roundup Ready technology with all Roundup Ready growers.
But the gains in productivity will continue only if growers like you continue to recognize the value of biotechnology products like the Roundup Ready gene, and are willing to share part of the value with technology developers like Monsanto. Without your support, further investment in biotech advancements will not be possible.
Corn and Soybean Technology Use Agreement
Through the introduction of the Technology Stewardship Agreement (TSA) in 2008, TSA licensed growers of corn and soybean seed containing Monsanto technology are not required to complete an annual TUA. This is exclusive to corn and soybean seed containing Monsanto technology.
