Germany: KWS builds biotech research center in St. Louis

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)

The German seed company KWS is starting a new biotech research center in Missouri. This can be seen as a reaction to negative attitudes toward biotech crops in Europe as well as non-existent markets. KWS is the third major German agricultural company to move its biotech research to the United States. Bayer has already done so in 2004, and BASF followed in 2012. FAS Berlin reached out to KWS as part of the Obama Administration's broader effort to increase foreign investment in the United States.
