Sorghum Checkoff, Chromatin Inc. partner to develop hybids

The Sorghum Checkoff and Chromatin Inc. will work collaboratively on a project to develop new higher yielding and more advanced grain sorghum hybrids for farmers.

The partnership will total $200,000 per year for five years and leverages Chromatin’s sorghum-based expertise and technology.

“The Sorghum Checkoff is committed to increasing producer profitability, and we are excited to partner with a company like Chromatin that is also completely focused on sorghum and committed to enhancing the quality and yield of grain sorghum,” said Stewart Weaver, Sorghum Checkoff chairman and grower from Edmondson, Ark. “This type of program exemplifies the role a national checkoff can play in utilizing producer dollars to make a difference in the sorghum industry.”
