Recently filed patent applications of Monsanto Technology Llc in USPTO?

Publication number: US20220098141A1
Application number: 17/545,250

The present invention generally relates to processes for the catalytic hydrogenation of halonitroaromatics. In particular, the present invention includes processes for the catalytic hydrogenation of halonitroaromatics such as 2,5-dicloronitrobenzene to 2,5-dichloroaniline over a platinum-containing catalyst. The present invention also relates to processes for producing 3,6-dichloro-2-methoxybenzoic acid.

Publication number: US20220090105A1
Application number: 17/543,811

The present invention provides recombinant DNA constructs, vectors and molecules comprising a polynucleotide sequence encoding a florigenic FT protein operably linked to a vegetative stage promoter, which may also be a meristem-preferred or meristem-specific promoter. Transgenic plants, plant cells and tissues, and plant parts are further provided comprising a polynucleotide sequence encoding a florigenic FT protein. Transgenic plants comprising a florigenic FT transgene may produce more bolls, siliques, fruits, nuts, or pods per node on the transgenic plant, particularly on the main stem of the plant, relative to a control or wild type plant. Methods are further provided for introducing a florigenic FT transgene into a plant, and planting transgenic FT plants in the field including at higher densities. Transgenic plants of the present invention may thus provide greater yield potential than wild type plants and may be planted at a higher density due to their altered plant architecture.

Publication number: US20220087187A1
Application number: 17/537,900

The present disclosure is in the field of plant breeding and disease resistance. The disclosure provides methods for breeding corn plants having northern leaf blight (NLB) resistance using marker-assisted selection. The disclosure further provides corn germplasm resistant to NLB. The disclosure also provides markers associated with NLB resistance loci for introgressing these loci into elite germplasm in a breeding program, thus producing novel NLB resistant germplasm.
