Alta Seeds launches new herbicide-tolerant sorghum
Texas-based seed company Alta Seeds has launched what it calls “the world’s first non-GMO, herbicide-tolerant sorghum”.
It’s called igrowth, and Alta spokesman Dean Loftis says it will be a game-changer.
“igrowth will revolutionize sorghum production in the U.S.,” he says.
Loftis says igrowth sorghum will have tolerance to imidazolinone herbicide for pre- or post-emergence control over broadleaf and grass weeds without causing damage to the crop. He says the product will be commercially available for growers for the 2021 season.
