Inbred Conversion Program


Native Traits is sponsoring an EaSYTMconversion program based on molecular markers and phenotypic performance.  Previously, it had been shown that the presence of two alleles is associated with a 50% improvement in seed parent yield (see table below).  Interested parties are invited to a private viewing of converted B73-type inbreds.  More information on the development of the EaSYTM trait, specifically the NT RECOVERYTM program, was presented in another post (click here).
