This week, Bayer stated that it expects the Monsanto (MON) acquisition to be delayed. Bayer asked for an extension to January 22.
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is aiming to allow farmers to spray the controversial weed-killer dicamba next year, but with additional rules for its use, an official with the agency said on Tuesday. Reuben Baris, acting chief of the herbicide branch of the Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) Office of Pesticide Programs, said the agency had not yet determined what steps it would take to mitigate problems associated with dicamba. The EPA has been discussing with state regulators ways to prevent such crop damage.
The European Commission said on Tuesday it has approved German drugs and pesticides group Bayer's request for an extension of the investigation into the $66 billion deal to acquire U.S. group Monsanto . The Commission has been scrutinising the proposed takeover with a deadline of Jan. 8 but Bayer said in a statement it had asked the regulator for an extension on the investigation to Jan. 22. "We can confirm that the deadline for the Commission to decide on the proposed merger has been extended until 22 January," a Commission spokesman said.
