Ideltis is seed brand name for new BASF hybrid wheat
BASF has announced the seed brand name for its new hybrid wheat.
Global wheat crop strategy lead Gustavo Gonzalez tells Brownfield Ideltis is intended to provide farmers with higher and more stable performance in yield and quality.
“We care about including disease resistance, increasing that protein level, and of course looking at higher yield. But more importantly, it’s also about increasing that stability that is key in any hybrid crop.”
He says Ideltis is expected to be commercially available in the next three to five years, initially for hard red winter and hard red spring wheat farmers in key growing regions of North America and Europe.
