Are BioAG and Monsanto BioAG the same Company. If not, are both owned or controlled by Monsanto?

I just bought BioAG TM-7 and BioAG CytoPlus  to add to compost tea in the future to grow high brix fruits and veggies in my garden in a few weeks. I also purchased BioAG Vam to add to some plant roots as a mycorrhizal inoculate. But after a little research it seems that Monsanto BioAG is a company as well. I'm not trying to put glyphosate in my garden by accident.

Can anyone shed light on whether they are the same company or if it's 2 completely different companies. I've read different statements (from different places) that both are true. So I'm completely confused.

I didn't have much time to dig this morning, but I thought I would offer this link up. Link To Announcement

It looks like there was some sort of alliance between Monsanto and other companies to independently develop microbial systems to lower other inputs. While that probably means GMO from Monsanto, I can't say what it means for the other company (possibly companies. The document only seems to mention one) though.

I'm having a slightly difficult time trying to find a clear answer, but it appears that Monsanto partnered with Novozymes from Denmark. Of course it boils down to the bottom line and if Monsanto didn't stand to profit they wouldn't do it. But it appears Monsanto largely did this partnership as a feeble attempt to bolster their public perception from people and planet poisoner to a more earth friendly "green" company. It's absolutely a wolf in sheeps clothing. Syngenta also partnered with Novozymes for what appears to be the same reason.

Edit: I was unable to find any information if the products you purchased are in any way related to Monsanto.
