BASF Committed to Hybrid Wheat

BASF Agricultural Solutions, who’s headquarters and innovation centers are based in New Jersey, have announced their new brand for hybrid wheat seeds – Ideltis. Ideltis signifies BASF’s commitment to transitioning wheat into long-term success with innovative hybridization.

While there already exist hybrids in a variety of crops, development and production of hybrid wheat seeds has been difficult and complex. Development of the technology that will support broad commercialization of hybrid wheat is just as crucial as the hybrid wheat itself. Ideltis has been working towards significantly increasing wheat yields. Success of these hybrids gives farmers new and promising seed choices that lead to more consistent quality and higher protein content. 

At this point, they are hopeful that their hybrid wheat will be available by the middle of the decade. Their process to achieve this is based on primary R&D breeding stations and operations, a global trial network, and a team of experts focused solely on this task.

Even if your development isn’t successful your work may still qualify for R&D credits (i.e. you don’t need to have a patent to qualify).
