Mycogen Seeds is introducing three new sunflower hybrids for the 2013 growing season, including a confection hybrid with CLEARFIELD® Plus herbicide technology.
"MYCOGEN brand sunflower hybrids offer improved output traits and provide resistance to rust, as well as the latest herbicide tolerance technologies,” says John Kalthoff, Mycogen Seeds portfolio marketing leader for oilseeds. “We continue to supply growers with sunflower hybrids that deliver higher oil content for higher premiums in nearly all market segments and more pounds per acre than our competitors.”
New sunflower hybrids
8C451CP is a hybrid featuring CLEARFIELD Plus herbicide technology for expanded weed control options. Widely adapted throughout all U.S. sunflower growing regions, this full-season hybrid is a top choice for confection processors with its large seed size and attractive seed color.
8D310CL is a con-oil hybrid featuring CLEARFIELD herbicide technology. This midseason hybrid offers exceptional yield and resistance to environmental stress. 8D310CL is bred primarily for the dehulling market.
8D417 is a superior medium full-season con-oil hybrid with excellent dehulling properties. A shorter sunflower, 8D417 offers outstanding yield for its maturity and is suitable for NuSun® and dehulling markets.
Developed from leading germplasm
Mycogen Seeds sunflower hybrids offer multiple-market versatility. With the most innovative U.S. sunflower-breeding program, new and more advanced sunflower technologies reach growers faster, including hybrids with resistance to new races of downy mildew.
"Mycogen Seeds develops hybrid sunflowers using leading germplasm to create high-performing hybrids,” Kalthoff says. “Growers trust us to provide sunflower seed that will deliver more pounds per acre.”
