The science behind better wheat.
You vented. We invented. We’d like to think it was that simple. However, years of research went into the development of AXigen® trait for wheat.
While the first step was to identify a herbicide that would provide superior control of our target annual grassy weeds, our second major challenge was to develop a trait in wheat that would provide excellent tolerance to that specific herbicide.
After the creation of AXigen, we made sure to extensively characterize and test this trait to ensure high levels of crop safety and performance with the application of Aggressor® herbicides.
Varieties with AXigen trait (identified with the “AX” suffix) are being introduced in all wheat growing regions. These varieties are tested again and again with Aggressor herbicides to make absolutely certain that these two will work well together to provide both superior grassy weed control and variety protection.
Only then, would this trait be ready to be launched commercially as AXigen and provide the foundation for the new CoAXium® Wheat Production System to help control tough annual grassy weeds.
AXigen is a patented herbicide-tolerance trait that is packed with potential and ready to help wheat growers around the world produce more, higher quality wheat as a part of the CoAXium Wheat Production System.
AXigen. The bottom line is – don’t plant wheat without it.
“I can’t tell you how excited we are about this project,” says Limagrain Cereal Seeds Chief Operating Officer Frank Curtis. “Grass weed species are a big problem for wheat growers, and we are proud to be a part of a team bringing together new genetics, chemistry and growers’ experience to give growers a more cost-effective solution to a perennial problem.”
