Clayshulte will discuss how the wheat hybrid system can be used as a basis to introduce new traits to increase the value of wheat. Open areas remain in bringing hybrids into the commercial seed market within North America and other regions. BASF purchased Bayer’s Seeds and Traits business in 2018, thus inheriting the hybrid wheat business. The legacy Bayer hybrid wheat strategy was based on observations of opportunities in wheat seeds and traits. Hybrid wheat development is based on genetics, experimental production systems, testing and selection. Different technology platforms can be utilized to identify and deliver value to wheat grains.
