Barkley Seed, Inc. announced its acquisition of the Desert Durum Wheat Research Program from Monsanto Company.
The recent global agreements Syngenta has established with companies such as Swedish agriculture-food company Lantemännen, Italian seed company Società Produttori Sementi (PSB) and Belgian brewing company Anheuser-Busch InBev, provide Syngenta opportunities to increase the diversity of its germplasm, assess quality profiles and find advanced technologies beneficial to North American growers in the years to come.
Winter wheat yield is affected by production practices, pest management, fertility and weather. One of the production practices having a major impact on yield is seeding date.

Afternoon Comments 09/02
The wheat markets turned decidedly lower Tuesday. Recent rainfall over the northern Plains hasn’t been conducive to a good spring wheat harvest, but traders seem to think it favors a strong start to winter wheat planting and growth. The tense Black Sea situation is obviously tense, but continued Ukrainian shipments seemed to undercut prices today. December CBOT wheat fell 8.5 cents to $5.55/bushel as Tuesday’s trading ended, while December KC wheat dropped 10.25 cents to $6.325/bushel, and December MWE wheat slumped 7.0 to $6.2275.
