Cibus and Rotam Announce Launch of its First Non-Transgenic Commercial Product
Nov 19 14
Cibus Global and Rotam have announced the launch of non-transgenic SU Canola(TM) (Sulfonylurea Tolerant) in the United States. Rotam has developed two new effective weed control solutions specifically designed for use on SU Canola(TM). SU Canola offers farmers a new alternative for weed control in canola that will provide sound stewardship options to deal with the management of glyphosate weed resistance. SU Canola is an optimal fit for rotation with glyphosate tolerant soybeans reducing weed pressure caused by volunteer glyphosate tolerant canola in soybean fields. Farmers can anticipate a product that has been developed to include exceptional broadleaf weed control, excellent crop safety, in an economical and easy-to-use package. Additionally, many participants in the canola industry including processors, farmers, and end use food consumers, will benefit from SU Canola as the oil and meal derived from this canola will address the growing demand for non-transgenic food ingredients. This initiative combines years of Cibus' cutting-edge laboratory research with Rotam's strong manufacturing and production capabilities in bringing two sulfonylurea herbicide products exclusively registered for SU Canola: Draft(TM), designed for Midwest applications, and Cleat(TM), registered for use in California. "Rotam is thrilled to join Cibus and provide a new system featuring its herbicide solutions for canola farmers," said Steve Stansell, Marketing Manager, Rotam North America.
