Alta Seeds Hybrids Show Tolerance to Sugarcane Aphid Pressure
Three Alta Seeds grain sorghum hybrids prove tolerant to the sugarcane aphid pest.
Third-party testing conducted by the Agricultural Research Division of the U.S. Department of Agriculture in Stillwater, Oklahoma, confirmed that three Alta Seeds sorghum hybrids, AG1201, AG1203 and AG1301, exhibit a high level of genetic tolerance to sugarcane aphids.
The hybrid evaluations were conducted using Tx2783, a known aphid-tolerant sorghum cultivar, in comparison to the Alta Seeds hybrids. All three Alta Seeds hybrids showed similar or superior tolerance to the check line.
