2007 Seed Outlook

Without question, the most fluid of the agricultural inputs sector has been the, for lack of a better word, “shuffling” that has taken place and is taking place. But equally without question, varieties are improving to meet (1) the yield demands of growers and (2) the quality demands of domestic and international buyers.

This past season saw the introduction of Monsanto’s Roundup Ready Flex technology that has widened the window of application from what it was with Roundup Ready. And Monsanto’s Bollgard II trait is the second generation of the Bollgard Bt technology.

Dow/PhytoGen’s WideStrike is a an insect protection trait that includes two Bt genes for wider control of lepidopteran pests.

The LibertyLink trait from Bayer CropScience/FiberMax allows the use of Ignite herbicide, and it entered its third year of availability this past season in FiberMax’s more established varieties and in new releases. Ignite is an excellent tool in battling glyphosate resistance.
