EU extends antitrust study of Bayer bid for Monsanto to March 12


BRUSSELS (Reuters) - European Union antitrust investigators said on Monday they had extended their investigation into Bayer's bid for Monsanto by five working days until March 12, without giving a reason.
The $66 billion deal would make Bayer the world's largest pesticides and seeds company, an outcome already facing strong criticism from environmentalists and some farm groups.
