Dow acquires Australian wheat breeder

Dow AgroSciences has fully acquired the Australian wheat breeding company, Advantage Wheats (Canberra). Dow took an undisclosed stake in the company, which was then named HRZ Wheats, in 2011 (Agrow No 624, p 2). It has now acquired the remaining shares from the Australian research organisation, the CSIRO, and Landmark Operations. The acquisition is part of the company’s strategy to become a key global player in wheat, it says. Dow will continue to work with the CSIRO on breeding and Landmark for seed production and promotion.
