Syngenta Launches New Sunflower

New offering is a NuSun Clearfield sunflower hybrid. Company says it has very good vigor, drought tolerance and stalk strength.

Syngenta announces the addition of 3158 NS/CL/DM brand to its sunflower hybrid line up for 2012.

The sunflower hybrid 3158 NS/CL/DM is a broadly adapted plant tailored to the Dakotas and High Plains regions that offers herbicide tolerance and protection from a wide range of diseases, including downy mildew.

"This newest hybrid gives sunflower growers a new tool to meet their demands for high oil content, herbicide tolerance and excellent yield," says Jim Johnson, Syngenta oilseeds product leader. "Having the industry's largest germplasm base and an unmatched research pipeline allows us to continue delivering top-notch hybrids with added value to the grower."

Through the Clearfield herbicide system, growers can easily control yield-robbing grass and broadleaf weeds after planting 3158 NS/CL/DM brand, he says.

Also, this NuSun® hybrid features very good vigor, drought tolerance and stalk strength, he says.

With a 97-day relative maturity, 3158 NS/CL/DM brand flowers early for a mid-season hybrid and can be grown in key sunflower geographies from North Dakota to the High Plains.
