Abbott & Cobb, Inc. Key Developments

Abbott & Cobb, Inc. Announces Licensing Agreement with Seeds, LLC

Abbott & Cobb, Inc. announced that it has completed a long-term agreement to license A&C's recently patented technology, SuperSeedWare to Syngenta Seeds, LLC for worldwide use in sweet corn varieties. SuperSeedWare (SSW) represents the first privately owned, 100% natural, gene-type in sweet corn breeding. Syngenta will begin to introgress SSW technology into its proprietary sweet corn genetics. The goals are to deliver enhanced seed quality, germination, and vigor, while maintaining the desirable benefits of conventional supersweet sh2 gene types, in particular, shelf-life. The SSW technology can also be used to transform existing sh2 hybrids that are already preferred by growers, into superior performers that generally mature earlier, can germinate in colder or warmer soils and, due to the added vigor, can grow more reliably under various climatic challenges.
