Syngenta/CIMMYT wheat development agreement

Syngenta and the non-profit International Maize and Wheat Improvement Center (CIMMYT) launched a public-private partnership deal this month aimed at developing new varieties and hybrids of wheat, and improving yields using native and genetically modified traits. The collaboration broadly covers seed and crop protection technologies. The research will utilise Syngenta’s genetic marker technology, advanced traits platform and wheat breeding for the developed world. CIMMYT will contribute wheat germplasm resources, and its global partnership network and wheat breeding programme targeted at the developing world. Since August 2009, Syngenta and CIMMYT have been collaborating to develop wheat varieties resistant to the Ug99 strain of stem rust ( Puccinia graminisAgrow No 575, p 11).
