Researchers at Purdue University have developed a new line of sorghum seeds with enhanced properties. There is a global need for a greater food supply to meet the needs of a growing population. The seeds fine-tuned by Purdue researchers help with food production by enabling higher crop yield, creating plants with stronger stalks, and allowing production of elite food grade hybrids. Several ideal plant properties have been achieved in this parent seed line including mold-resistance, drought tolerance, and ability to mature earlier than traditional seeds. The Purdue seed kit includes a set of sixteen sorghum germplasm seeds and four specialized pollinators to ensure success in crop management.

Advantages:
-Mold-resistant
-Drought-resistant
-Cost-effective
-Reliable
-Strong stalks

Potential Applications:
-Farming
-Food production
