“DuPont Crop Protection and Advanta US are working closely with regulatory agencies and local seed and crop protection teams to develop a product stewardship plan for the new seed trait,” added Hay. “Our top priority is to preserve the usefulness of this valuable technology. That means educating all parties on stewardship and best management practices before bringing Inzen Z to market.”
Alta Seeds contends that it provides growers with the latest technology and advanced genetics in grain and forage sorghum. Advanta sorghum hybrids come from the industry's “largest germplasm pool, including 50 years of breeding and research from its US legacy companies.”
Alta Seeds is known for offering a wide array of unique forage sorghum hybrids enhanced with the following traits: brachytic dwarf, brown midrib, dry stalk, male sterile and photoperiod sensitive.
Advanta US is an operating unit of Advanta, a global seed company and touts being the international leader in sorghum germplasm that combines advanced techniques in conventional plant breeding with biotechnology to deliver world-class seed and solutions to its customers around the world.
