dear Alastair, this is the link to the CNA deal: www.canaldoprodutor.com.br/sites/default/files/Comunicado.pdf It´s only an agreement over RR1. RR2 or the way Monsanto charges for royalties are not mentioned. Monsanto, therefore, lies about having reached an agreement. FYI, the comented contract Monsanto proposed to the farmers: http://www.aprosoja.com.br/servicos/Paginas/acao-judicial-rr1.aspx?utm_source=Google&utm_medium=Banner&utm_content=ROYALTIES%2BDE%2BSOJA%3A%2BPRODUTORES%2BDE%2BMT%2BTER%C3%83O%2BDUAS%2BOP%C3%87%C3%95ES&utm_campaign=A%C3%A7%C3%A3o%2BJudicial%2BRR1 Please, don´t think the info you get from Monsanto is OK. It´s not. Best Regards

Dear Florian, You are right, the accord doesn't make direct mention of RR2. However, the individual contracts that Monsanto asked the farmers to sign does. It was implicit that the CNA endorsed the contracts by signing the general agreement. Regards
