Alta Seeds, a seed brand of Advanta Seeds, announced three of its grain sorghum hybrids have proven tolerant to the sugarcane aphid pest.

Third-party testing conducted by the Agricultural Research Division of the U.S. Department of Agriculture in Stillwater, Okla., confirmed that three Alta Seeds sorghum hybrids, AG1201, AG1203 and AG1301, exhibit a high-level of genetic tolerance to sugarcane aphids.

The hybrid evaluations were conducted using Tx2783, a known aphid-tolerant sorghum cultivar, in comparison to the Alta Seeds hybrids. All three Alta Seeds hybrids showed similar or superior tolerance to the check line.
