Partnering for Innovation, Performance and Value

In 2008, Colorado wheat growers initiated a novel trait development project with Colorado State University. The goal: Develop a herbicide-tolerance trait that would help control tough annual grassy weeds delivered with the superior performance and yields of leading wheat varieties. The challenge was to create a system that would enhance profitability of wheat growers in Colorado and around the globe.

In June of 2015, three major agricultural organizations came together to change the way farmers produce wheat. Together they created a simple, cost-effective production system that combines elite wheat varieties from the world’s best breeding programs, a patented non-GMO herbicide-tolerance trait and a new post-emergent ACCase grass herbicide that is robust and long lasting through its industry-leading stewardship program.
