ASUR PLANT BREEDING is at the forefront of technical innovation in the field of hybrid seeds production, with the Croisor®100 technology as well as through major projects: seeds conservation, cross-pollination, and hybridity rate.
CROISOR®100 : a unique hybridization technology
Croisor®100 is ASUR PB's proprietary Chemical Hybridizing Agent (CHA), a special type of Plant Growth Regulator that prevents the formation of viable pollen grains in wheat plants once applied at a special dose and growth stage.
Croisor®100's active substance SINTOFEN has been successfully registered for hybrid wheat seed production by the European Union in 2010, thanks to its very favourable health and environmental profiles. The Croisor®100 formulated product is authorized for use in France and various states of the EU's central zone.
Croisor®100's Technology Department ensures the deregulation, development and procurement of Croisor®100. It also runs continuously various cutting-edge R&D projects to improve the effectiveness of hybrid seed production, toward a minimal quantity of hybridization agent and a maximal efficiency.
