The U.S. Department of Justice has ended an antitrust investigation into Monsanto's soybean genetic traits business and the seed industry, the company said Friday.

The DOJ had demanded information in January 2010 from St. Louis-based Monsanto on the company's soybean genetic trait business, after complaints that Monsanto was trying to limit access to push a new, pricier product instead.
