DuPont's herbicide-tolerant sorghum on show

Herbicide-tolerant sorghum lines being developed by DuPont seed subsidiary Pioneer Hi-Bred International are expected to be commercialised in the US in 2013, a DuPont official told growers at a plot demonstration at Texas A&M University this month. The company is developing conventional sorghum lines with tolerance to acetolactate synthase (ALS) or acetyl CoA carboxylase (ACCase) inhibitors. It acquired exclusive commercialisation rights to the traits from the Kansas University Research Foundation in 2008 ( Agrow No 537, p 3).
