Nutrisun is a patented, proprietary germplasm that delivers sunflower oil with a special content of fatty acids. The high stearic, high oleic sunflower oil (HSHOSO) is the only saturated fatty acid that does not raise levels of bad cholesterol.
Triazine Tolerant Canola is a range of herbicide tolerant canola hybrids with high yields, high oil, high blackleg resistance and the ability to achieve excellent weed control and the stacking traits ability with other technologies such as Clearfield and Roundup Ready. It provides growers with a proven reliable IWM tool.
We understand the marker for high content oil seeds and developed a new generation of ultra-high oleic sunflower seeds which deliver a unique oil for the food industry.
