Bayer opens mustard breeding centre in India

Bayer CropScience has opened a mustard breeding centre at Palwal in northern India. Eight employees stationed at the site will work on developing key traits and breeding targets in yield assurance through herbicide tolerance, disease control, yield enhancement, seedpod shatter resistance and oil quality. The breeding station will be spread across 10 acres (4 ha). The company claims to be the global market leader in oilseed rape germplasm with around a 25% share. It views mustard as a strategic crop in India, which has some 6.5 million ha under cultivation.
