BASF and Cibus achieve milestone in canola

BASF and Cibus have announced they have reached a significant research milestone for developing CLEARFIELD Production System plants in Brassica winter oilseed rape and in spring canola.

Cibus' patented Rapid Trait Development System (RTDS) was used to enhance the tolerance levels of spring canola plants to BASF's popular CLEARFIELD herbicides. Data from both greenhouse and field trials show that the new generation of products demonstrates enhanced tolerance levels to CLEARFIELD herbicides. Additionally, the new and improved CLEARFIELD traits will enable canola breeders to develop high yielding hybrids more quickly with greater efficiencies.

Alyson Emanuel, BASF Director, Global Strategic Marketing Herbicides, said, "We are very pleased with the success of the next generation of CLEARFIELD products. BASF worked with Cibus to develop seeds using Cibus' RTDS technology to target a specific trait not previously achieved with other technologies and the results have been outstanding. As a result of the development of this new proprietary herbicide tolerant trait using the RTDS process, seed companies will be able to put this unique trait into hybrids more efficiently, leading to increased on-farm yields."

Production improvements are beneficial for both farmers and seed company producers, and this novel development will enable a more cost effective hybrid development program to provide farmers with higher yielding, superior performing hybrids for the CLEARFIELD Production System in oilseed rape/canola. BASF anticipates commercializing the new trait as early as 2013.

Cibus' proprietary gene conversion technology, RTDS, enables trait development that is quicker to market with less regulatory expense. RTDS technology is a non-transgenic approach for providing plant improvements as compared to classical genetic transformation. BASF's flagship brand in herbicide tolerance weed control, the CLEARFIELD Production System, matches agronomically advanced seed varieties with custom-designed imidazolinone herbicides that provide extended grass and broadleaf weed control to the farmer.

The CLEARFIELD Production System has been used extensively since 1995. The system matches carefully selected advanced seed varieties/hybrids with custom-designed imidazolinone herbicides. All CLEARFIELD varieties and hybrids are recognized as non-transgenic by international authorities. At the present time, BASF possesses the world's largest portfolio of non-transgenic herbicide tolerant traits and has established relationships with more than 100 seed companies throughout the world. This strategy of worldwide alliances supports the program with an unmatched offering of seed alternatives to meet the specific local needs and preferences of individual growers.
